Flexible Joint Step Function Stiffness

Looking for an update to flex coupling input box to better model flexible coupling behavior.

Flexible joint additional inputs (see attached)

1) Max angle of deflection for flex joint

2) Two stiffness inputs for bending stiffness. Stiffness changes at a specified angle of deflection.


Not as ideal but....similar to Caesar IIs method (bilinear stiffness with change based on force threshold)
