This paper presents the numerical solution of a viscoelastic continuous beam whose damping behaviours are defined in term of fractional derivatives of arbitrary order. Homotopy Perturbation Method (HPM) is used to obtain the dynamic response with respect to unit impulse load. Obtained results are depicted in term of plots. Comparisons are made with the analytic solutions obtained by Zu-feng and Xiao-yan (2007) to show the effectiveness and validation of the present method.
