A FORTRAN computer program is described which can analyse two dimensional plane stress structures, using the displacement method of finite element techniques. Throughout the analysed structure the program provides deflections and principal stresses as well as stresses in the co-ordinate directions. The program can also provide the internal force distribution. The program includes a banded matrix method of solving the simultaneous equations which greatly reduces the cost of the calculation.
