This paper presents a large deflection analysis of flexible frame structures, in which the procedure of vector form intrinsic finite element is adopted to formulate a plane frame element. The formulation includes a new description of kinematics to handle large rotations and large deformations, and a set of deformation coordinates for each time increment to describe shape functions and internal nodal forces. A convected material frame and explicit time integration for the solution procedures are also adopted. Five numerical examples are presented in the paper to illustrate numerical verifications.
