This user's manual contains a detailed description of the application of program BEAM. This program performs an incremental iterative tangent stiffness finite element analysis of beams. The cross-section must be symmetric about the plane of loading and plane sections must adequately describe the strain field. This report describes the input required and the output generated. The various input options and their application are explained through five complete example inputs. A listing of the program is included. /FHWA/
