Abstract : The finite element method is applied to solids with an axis of material symmetry subjected to Fourier expandable thermal, body force and surface traction loadings. The governing equations are derived for triangular toroidal continuum elements and for thin conical shell elements. A computer program is described and various results are presented as verification. The program is described and a user's manual is given. A listing of the program source deck is included. (Author)
