Individual tubulars attached to marine risers are modelled as continuous axially loaded multiple-spanned beams. Traditional methods for solving continuous beam-column problems require the solution to many simultaneous equations. The calculation procedure in this paper requires that only two equations be solved simultaneously; intermediate support reaction loads are obtained by using recursion formulas.
