Accomplishments this week:
I reworked all the pytests for contact module and pushed a PR for the same #274. Though it still had issues as my mentors pointed out that the rod's attributes arrays had wrong dimensions and suggested better approaches to tackle a test that I later implemented. This helped me in gaining a deeper understanding of the contact module. Other than this, I also started working on the issue no. - #270 and created a basic mesh importer module.
I will design more pytests for contact module that tests the functions with non zero 'nu' that is the 'velocity damping coefficient'. I will also keep on working on issues - #270 and #266 on the side.
