## Problem Specification

Consider the following bike crank model.

To orient ourselves, the following figure shows the location of a similar bike crank mounted on a bicycle.

Material properties: The bicycle crank's material is aluminum 6061-t6. The Young's modulus is 10,000 ksi, and the Poisson's Ratio is .33.

Boundary conditions: Apply a load of 100 lbf in the y-direction on the right hole surface and fix the 3 left hole surfaces as shown below. Note that this is an approximation of the actual loads and constraints on the bike crank.
