Recently many programs by the finite element method are being used for structural analyses. This method, however, is hampered by cumbersome input and output data and the long duration needed for calculation. For this reason, a program was developed for specific fields by taking into account the accuracy needed, ease of application and others. Structures include many beam members and the stress at connecting parts of these beam members in such a structure is problematical. A program was developed using finite element method combined with the beam theory for the in-plane stress analysis. In this program, the volume of input data is reduced by treating plate members of the same type as common data. These members faculties that were parallel shift rotation, turn over, extention/reduction and increase/decrease of thickness. Calculation errors led to poor results in some cases. The properties of these errors were reviewed and a method to reduce them was established.
