A Numerical Solution for Non-Prismatic Beams with Arbitrary Transverse Loading and End Restraint Conditions

The paper presents a numerical technique for solving two-point boundary beam problems. The method of analysis consists of utilizing the method of superposition in conjunction with accurate expressions for boundary-value derivatives and a double integration formula. The method particularly lends itself to the analysis of statically indeterminate beams, with non-uniform bending stiffness under transverse loading. T.J. Kotas
