In this paper, we discuss the numerical solution of special class of fractional boundary value problems of order 2. The method of solution is based on a conjugating collocation and spline analysis combined with shooting method. A theoretical analysis about the existence and uniqueness of exact solution for the present class is proven. Two examples involving Bagley-Torvik equation subject to boundary conditions are also presented; numerical results illustrate the accuracy of the present scheme.
