Hi,

set the aspect ratio by hand, i.e.,

DisplayChannel = $DisplayFunction;
If[$VersionNumber >= 6.0, DisplayChannel = Print];
(*fix for Mathematica 6& later*)
Off[General::spell1]; Off[General::spell];

ClearAll[r];
vFEM = {{4., 0.054}, {7., 0.0395}, {10., 0.037}};
vexact = 0.1905*(1/r + r/100); rbeg = 4.; rend = 10.;
pFEM = ListPlot[vFEM, PlotJoined -> True,
    PlotStyle -> {RGBColor[1, 0, 0]}, DisplayFunction -> Identity];
pexact = Plot[vexact, {r, rbeg, rend},
    PlotStyle -> {RGBColor[0, 0, 0]}, DisplayFunction -> Identity];
Show[Graphics[AbsoluteThickness[2]], pexact, pFEM,
  TextStyle -> {FontFamily -> "Times", FontSize -> 12},
  GridLines -> Automatic, Axes -> True, PlotRange -> All,
  PlotLabel -> "Radial displacement (black=exact,red=FEM)",
  Frame -> True, DisplayFunction -> DisplayChannel, AspectRatio -> 1]
