the only structural elements sfepy can use are large deformation membranes  or shell elements . Beam elements are not implemented (although possible to implement), meaning 1D bars/beams in 2D or 3D space. 1D elements in 1D space are implemented .

I am also interested in sfepy being able to do this. Although I believe that it isn't capable, I would love to find out I am wrong.

Has there been anyone who has used 1D elements to perform analysis of a system of beams?
I have not found much information regarding the use of 1D elements and how one would assign geometric properties to this type of element.
Any help would be much appreciated.
