The development of DQEM solution of structural problems with structures resting on a two-parameter foundation was carried out. The DQEM uses DQ or EDQ to discretize the governing differential equation defined on each element, the transition conditions defined on the inter-element boundary of two adjacent elements and the boundary conditions of the beam. Some EDQ models can be generated by DQ. They are DQ generated EDQ. Numerical results solved by the developed numerical algorithms are presented. The convergence of the developed DQEM analysis models is efficient.
