http://numericalmethods.eng.usf.edu 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 0 1 2 2 2 = + r u dr du r dr u d The pressure vessel can be modeled as, ( ) 2 1 1 2 2 2 r u u u dr u d i i i + + r u u dr du i i + 1 Substituting these approximations gives you, ( ) 0 1 2 2 1 2 1 1 = + + + + i i i i i i i i r u r u u r r u u u ( ) ( ) ( ) 0 1 1 1 2 1 1 1 2 2 2 1 2 = + + + + i i i i i i u r u r r r r u r r r
