Plot vertical displacement - cantilever beam, Civil Engineering

1. The cantilever beam-like structure  shown below is modeled  using  a 2 x 10 mesh of rectangular four-node plane stress elements of equal size. Do the following and compare with the beam theory solution.
 
(a) Construct the element matrix numerically using the 2x2 point rule.

(b) Plot vertical displacement along the line.

(c) Plot stress values at the element centroids.
