# Pre-Analysis & Start-Up

In the *Pre-Analysis* step, we'll first consider how to reduce the model using periodicity. Then, we'll review the following:

**Mathematical model****Numerical solution strategy****Hand-calculations of expected results**

### Model Reduction

We'll model half-a-bolt assuming periodic symmetry. The reduced model has four parts which are indicated in different colors in the image below.
