This paper shows how boundary element method can be used to calculate torsion geometrical stiffness of cross-sections of various beams and airfoil profiles. Using the BEM direct formulation, the technique for determining bending and torsional geometrical characteristics of arbitrary multiply connected cross-sections is presented. The application limits of several well-known formulae on some test problems have been demonstrated and discused.
