The I - V characteristics of a 1D Josephson-junction array with charging effect is numerically investigated. The hysteresis loops in the I - V curves show the multiple branch structure. When the coupling between junctions is relatively weak and the Josephson critical current jc is weakly dependent on the junction site, the number of junctions showing the AC Josephson effect changes by one at the transitions to the nearest-neighbor branches. In this case we obtain the I - V curves quite similar to those observed in single crystals of high-Tc cuprates.
