Abstract: An earlier method [5] of establishing consistent finite difference equations is extended to obtain equations of higher degrees of precision. Again, the main advantage over the customary finite element method is that this new technique uses a uniform grid so that the boundary of the disk need not consist of grid segments. Numerous displays of pertinent quantities are given to facilitate the application of the method to specific stress boundary value problems.
