!!!! Objective Function Plot

One part of the assignment asks you to select width and load as variables for a 3d optimal surface plot and plot the solution of the optimization problem to minimize deflection at each of the width / load combinations. This tutorial example shows how to do this same activity but for the alternative problem of minimizing weight.

(:description Engineering design of a two-bar structure to support a load. Optimization principles are used to design the system.:)

A design of the truss is specified by a unique set of values for the analysis variables: height (H), diameter, (d), thickness (t), separation distance (B), modulus of elasticity (E), and material density (rho). Suppose we are interested in designing a truss that has a minimum weight, will not yield, will not buckle, and does not deflect "excessively,” and so we decide our model should calculate weight, stress, buckling stress and deflection.
