In this study, an effective computer program coded in Fortran is presented for both in-plane and out-of-plane free vibration analysis of elastic uniform arcs having any double-symmetrical cross-sections. The transfer matrix method is employed in the analysis. The validity of the program is verified by solving the relevant problems available in the literature. Copyright (C) 1996 Elsevier Science Ltd.
