1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I am trying to solve a system of 2 ordinary differential equations using matlab. However, I am not able to get numerical solutions from the code despite having keyed in all possible solutions. 2. Relevant equations The equations I am given are: dx/dt=A(x/t)+By dy/dt=C(x/t^2)+D(y/t) and the boundary conditions are: y(1)=0; y(1.2)=-100E6 3. The attempt at a solution Mod note: Added code tags. My code so far: Code (Matlab M): %Mechanical Properties of Material E=200e9; nu=0.3; P=100E6; %Constants A,B,C,D in the Equations a11= (1/E); a12= (-nu/E); a33= (1/E); A= (a12)/(a11+a12); B= ((a33)-((2*a12^2)/(a11+a12))); C= (a11)/(a11^2-a12^2); D= (2*a12+a11)/(a11+a12); %Defining the System of 2ODES syms x(t) y(t) eqns = [diff(x,t)==A*(x/t)+B*y, diff(y,t)==-C*(x/t^2)-D*y]; cond = [y(1) == 0, y(1.2)==-P]; withSimplifications = dsolve(eqns, cond) withoutSimplifications = dsolve(eqns, cond, 'IgnoreAnalyticConstraints', false) [xSol(t), ySol(t)] = dsolve(eqns) The answer is get is Warning: Explicit solution could not be found. > In dsolve (line 201) In IsotropicThickWallCylinder (line 18) xSol(t) = [ empty sym ] ySol(t) = [ empty sym ] [ Would really appreciate some help.
