2 Finite Difference Method

3 3 Finite Difference Method An example of a boundary value ordinary differential equation is The derivatives in such ordinary differential equation are substituted by finite divided differences approximations, such as

4 Example Take the case of a pressure vessel that is being tested in the laboratory to check its ability to withstand pressure. For a thick pressure vessel of inner radius a and outer radius b, the differential equation for the radial displacement u of a point along the thickness is given by The pressure vessel can be modeled as, Substituting these approximations gives you,
