Free Curved Beam Element Examples

  • Buntara S. Gan


In this chapter, the Isogeometric approach is applied to free curved beam element. The free curved beams considered in this section were modeled by the least element number which is necessary. The numerical solutions for the examples in static and free vibration problems are presented to show the effectiveness of the NURBS functions in modeling free curved beams.
