# Calculus: Verify Thick Walled Cylinder Equations

#### Ketav

1. Homework Statement

I have a system of two ordinary differential equations as shown below. I have to prove that the Lame's exact solutions for a thick walled cylinder loaded by internal pressure satisfies the equations.

The next step is to integrate the equations to obtain an equation for U and radial stress

2. Homework Equations
How should i go about the solution of this problem

3. The Attempt at a Solution
I have tried to find solutions for this but get stuck after the substitution of all given info

I have tried to substitute the equations but for the hoop stress I obtain the relationship between b and r as one.
If anyone has any suggestions, I will be very thankful to you.
I have tried solving the differential equations however, i get to a point where I get d2u/dr2 + i/r du/dr + u/r=0 and get stuck with integration constants

This is really a math problem. I'm going to move it to the math homework forum. Please show us your work in doing the substitutions.

So Ive done this,

now im confused about the integration. its a double integral but the boundary conditions are for r and sigma r
