Visualizing the Equivalent 3D Solution

One can visualize the 2D axisymmetric solution in 3D by revolving the 2D solution about the axis. This is not required in the above problem statement but is useful to build physical intuition about axisymmetric models. To learn how to revolve the 2D solution about the axis, go to the bottom of this page and review the last video entitled "Stepped Shaft in ANSYS, Axisymmetric Visualization."
