Problem about mixture of ode-pde
I have developed a PDE solver, pde1dM, that Ibelieve can solve your coupled PDE/ODE system. The solver runs in MATLAB and is s...

Solve heat equation with source term
T and m are referred to as dependent variables, not independent; x and t are the independent variables. This Example shows how t...

Unable to meet integration tolerances
Your equations have a fundamental error. Just calculate the "s" term along the length at the initial temperature and the problem...

How to solve PDE problem
Your PDE can replaced by these two PDE which is a form acceptable to pdepe. However, pdepe, or in fact any numerical method,...

Solving second order PDE
The reason that pdepe imposes a boundary condition of the flux equal zero at the center is that this is required for the proble...

PDEPE: Unable to meet integration tolerances without reducing the step size below the smallest value allowed at time t.
You are trying to solve a system of ODE which is something pdepe is not designed for. Specifically, the pdepe documentation says...

1D Fourier equation with temperature dependent thermal properties
function [c,f,s] = pdex1pde(x,t,T,dudx,diffr,Tfront) diffr=3.34E-10*T^4 - 9.37E-07*T^3 + 9.38E-04*T^2 - 4.80E-01*T + 2.09E+02; ...

how can I code a system of 2 pdes and an ode for modelling a packed bed
I did some experimentation with your code. Here are a couple of comments related to the changes I made: Because the equations a...

PDE system - pdepe system example - error or incomplete description on Matlab website?
Looks like you have found an error in this documentation page. If you look at equation 3 in the referenced paper you will see th...

Pdepe: Spatial discretization has failed. Discretization supports only parabolic and elliptic equations, with flux term involving spatial derivative.
Your boundary conditions (BC) are specified incorrectly; a qr(i) value of zero and pr(i)=constant is not a valid BC. Since you ...

PDEPE: Unable to meet integration tolerances for large values of Ra
The convergence problem you are seeing is due to the strong boundary layer effect near , i.e. the solution is undergoing a shar...

How to define stepchanges, variable BC for different timeintervalls using pdepe?
The reason that your code didn't show a change in the BC with time is due to the programming error that Torsten pointed out. If ...

Solving advection diffusion pde
The only problem I see with your code is in the boundary conditions. I corrected your bcfun function and have attached my versio...

Moving boundary problem with Stefan condition (modeling mass and heat transfer for sublimation front)
I think you may be able to solve this problem using the |pdepe| function. The idea is that you model both phases as a single re...

Error using pdepe - Spatial discretization has failed. Discretization supports only parabolic and elliptic equations, with flux term involving spatial derivative.
The fundamental cause of your problem is that your initial conditions are inconsistent with your boundary condition at |x=0|. M...

How to rewrite a PDE equation and set the parameters for solving the temperature changes?
I think you can use |pdepe| to solve this but you need to include both the equation for Ts and the one for Tg; in your pde funct...

How do I solve fourth order PDE numerically?
I have created an example, which might be of help, showing how to use the |pdepe| function to solve the beam equation : <https:...

what is wrong in my pdepe code ?
The problem you have described is ill-posed. The source term must be prescribed over some finite length of the domain, not simp...

issue with pdepe: "Spatial discretization has failed."
Beyond the problems already mentioned by Torsten, the reason for the error message is that you have listed the returned argumen...

How can I solve an ODE when F(x0)=F'(x0)=0 is given at an unknown point x=x0 using bvp5c?
You have a second order ODE so you need two boundary conditions. The term "boundary condition" implies that you know the locatio...

Lack of Boundary Conditions to solve PDE (using pdepe function)
In your original code, set your boundary condition function to this: pl = [ul(1); 0]; ql = [0;1]; pr = [pi*exp(-t); 0...
