Solution Process Conduct a Preliminary Analysis using Mechanics principles to estimate stress level Mesh generation- Use the given Matlab files to generate a mesh of suitable mesh density. (rodDesign2.m) Variable parameter = Mesh_Density Can vary from 3-15. Do not know which mesh density gives best result, hence need to perform a convergence study. Once mesh is constructed, apply displacement and force boundary conditions Displacement bc is obtained from rodDesign2.m Force bc has to be specified using parameter <frc>
