The present work gives a systematic and rigorous implementation of Volterra dislocations in ordinary two-dimensional finite elements using the thermal analogue and the integral representation of dislocations through the stresses. The full fields are given for edge dislocations in anisotropic crystals, and the Peach-Koehler forces are found for some important examples.
