3 Finite Element Method by G. R. Liu and S. S. Quek 3 INTRODUCTION Deform axially and transversely. It is capable of carrying both axial and transverse forces, as well as moments. Hence combination of truss and beam elements. Frame elements are applicable for the analysis of skeletal type systems of both planar frames (2D frames) and space frames (3D frames). Known generally as the beam element or general beam element in most commercial software.

22 Finite Element Method by G. R. Liu and S. S. Quek 22 REMARKS In practical structures, it is very rare to have beam structure subjected only to transversal loading. Most skeletal structures are either trusses or frames that carry both axial and transversal loads. A beam element is actually a very special case of a frame element. The frame element is often conveniently called the beam element.
