Abstract: In this report, a detailed description of the 3-D version finite element pro-gram FESTER is given. This includes: 1. A brief introduction to the package FESTER; 2. Preparing an input data file for the 3D version of FESTER; 3. Principal stress and stress invariant analyses; 4. 2D joint element (surface contact) characterisation and its mathematical formulation; 5. Formulations of the 3D stress-strain analyses for both isotropic and anisotropic materials, plane of weakness and cracking criteria; 6. 3D brick elements, infinity elements and their corresponding shape and mapping functions; 7. Large-displacement formulations; 8. Modifications to the subroutines INVAR, JNTB, TMAT, MOD2 etc; 9. Numerical examples; and 10. Conclusions.
