This paper is to introduce a formulation, an efficient solution procedure, a microcomputer program, and a graphics routine for an anisotropic symmetrically laminated beam finite element including the effect of shear deformation. The emphasis of the formulation and solution procedure is for simplicity, efficiency, and easy implementation in microcomputers. The element possesses six d.o.f.s at each of the two nodes transverse deflection and slope due to bending and shear, respectively and a twisting angle and its derivative with respect to the beam axis.
