# Trying to solve a system of ODEs

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I am trying to solve a system of 2 ordinary differential equations using matlab. However, I am not able to get numerical solutions from the code despite having keyed in all possible solutions.
2. Relevant equations
The equations I am given are:

dx/dt=A(x/t)+By
dy/dt=C(x/t^2)+D(y/t)

and the boundary conditions are:

y(1)=0; y(1.2)=-100E6

1. The attempt at a solution

My code so far:

%Mechanical Properties of Material
E=200e9;
nu=0.3;
P=100E6;
%Constants A,B,C,D in the Equations
a11= (1/E);
a12= (-nu/E);
a33= (1/E);
A= (a12)/(a11+a12);
B= ((a33)-((2a12^2)/(a11+a12)));
C= (a11)/(a11^2-a12^2);
D= (2
a12+a11)/(a11+a12);
%Defining the System of 2ODES
syms x(t) y(t)
eqns = [diff(x,t)==A(x/t)+By, diff(y,t)==-C(x/t^2)-Dy];
cond = [y(1) == 0, y(1.2)==-P];
withSimplifications = dsolve(eqns, cond)
withoutSimplifications = dsolve(eqns, cond, 'IgnoreAnalyticConstraints', false)
[xSol(t), ySol(t)] = dsolve(eqns)

Warning: Explicit solution could not be found.

In dsolve (line 201)

In IsotropicThickWallCylinder (line 18)

xSol(t) =

[ empty sym ]

ySol(t) =

[ empty sym ]

Would really appreciate some help.

2) Make sure your syntax for MATLAB is correct. Remember that the statement "Ax + By" turns into "Ax + By" when coding. In the first case, MATLAB understands that you have two variables, Ax and By. In the second case, MATLAB understands you have two variables (x and y) and two defined constants (A and .
