The details of development of the stiffness matrix of a laminated anisotropic curved beam finite element are reported. It is a 16 dof element which makes use of 1-D first order Hermite interpolation polynomials for expressing it's assumed displacement state. The performance of the element is evaluated considering various examples for which analytical or other solutions are available.
