Problem 1: Part 11 
Compute the rate of deformation at the blue point.
The rate of deformation is given by
Using the velocity gradient from the previous question, the rate of deformation at the blue point is given by
The Maple code is given below.
> # > # Compute rate of deformation > # > GradVT := transpose(GradV); > DefRate := evalm(1/2*(GradV + GradVT));
