Variational Iteration Method for the Solution of Boundary Value Problems

Olayiwola M.O.; Gbolagade A .W.; Akinpelu F. O.

In this work, we present a reliable framework to solve boundary value problems with particular significance in solid mechanics. These problems are used as mathematical models in deformation of beams. The algorithm rests mainly on a relatively new technique, the Variational Iteration Method. Some examples are given to confirm the efficiency and the accuracy of the method.
