Abstract
ANSR is a general purpose computer program for static and dynamic analysis of nonlinear structures. This report documents the features and organization of the current version of the program. The theoretical formulations and solution schemes used in the program are described, and details are given about the structure and organization of the auxiliary program for adding new finite elements to the program. Several examples are presented to illustrate the scope of ANSR. The user's manual for the program is described.
