Only the upper half of the bar is modeled because of symmetry. The boundary conditions become free-fixed for
the half symmetry model. A total of 10 master degrees of freedom in the X-direction are selected to characterize
the buckling mode. The moment of inertia of the bar is calculated as I = Ah2/12 = 0.0052083 in4 . Results Comparison
