Problem 3: Boundary Value Problem (Finite Difference Method) A 60-m long flexible cable is fixed at both ends. The vertical displacement (positive downward) of the cable is described by the following boundary value problem. T ) ( ) ( 2 2 x w dx x y d = with y(0 m )=0 m and y( 60 m ) = 0 m The cable tension T is 10000 [ N ] and the load (weight) distribution w(x) along the cable is given by ] / [ ) 20 / exp( 10 10 ) ( m N x x w + = .
