 August 24, 2010, 14:52 Dealing with nonlinear ODE with contraint equations #1 Member   Jeong Kim Join Date: Feb 2010 Posts: 42 Rep Power: 8 I'd like to solve the below highly nonlinear ODEs with constraint equations. Eq 1 is a 2nd order ODE, so I need two BCs where only one BC is specified and the other should be determined by Eq2. I have no clue on how to approach this kind of problem and don't know how to use Eq 2. I really appreciate that if you could give me some helps to resolve those constraints in terms of numerics. Thanks. Governing Equations -------------------- nu: 2*(1+nu+nu^2)*nu'*nu'' + (2*nu+1)*(nu')^3 = 0, (Eq 1) Boundary Conditions ------------------- nu(-1) = 0.2, nu(1) = alpha (determined by Eq2) Constraints ------------- N=integral( nu*dY ) dY from Y=-1 to Y=1, (Eq 2) Eq 4 should be used to determine alpha Last edited by enoch; August 25, 2010 at 09:51.
