A general purpose program SAPFEM in finite element structural analysis. This paper gives main functions of a general purpose program called SAPFEM for static strength analysis of structure by the finite element method. This program,which has been developed by authors on the computer 709, is a widely used program, which deals with thirteen kinds of elements, for example, rod, membrane, plate, shell, axi-symmetric body and three dimentional body. It can be used for caculating various types of static structural problems for a single or a composite structures. If necessary, other new kinds of elements can easily be inserted, such that range of application of this program can be further expanded. In addition, this paper also discusses some computational technics relating to the programing of the SAPFEM.
