Week 3

I had a very productive week 3. I spent most of the week debugging and was finally able to get the program to run correctly after a few tweaks suggested by my mentor, Brad.

PyLith now computes the first time step to determine the initial stresses and displacements of a flexible beam with the properties of ice fixed in position at one end.  I am very excited to work on the next step of the project which is to make pressure depth dependent and find the equilibrium position for the ice beam which should be close to the analytical solution found in Matlab.
