Abstract : The computer program for the analysis of linearly elastic plane-stress or plane-strain problems devised by Felippa in his work on 'Refined Finite Element Analysis of Linear and Nonlinear Two-dimensional Structures' has been modified to include the use of initial displacement boundary conditions. In addition the original IBM 7094 computer dependent program has been adapted for use on the IBM 360/65 computer. In both programs the FORTRAN IV language has been used. Problems involving 'Poor fit' displacement boundary conditions and refined mesh analysis using coarse mesh analysis input displacements, which could not have been done with the original program, are now possible with the modified version presented herein.
