How to solve a set of coupled ODEs (4th Order)?

Asked by Shashank on 28 Jun 2013

Could somebody help me solve this set of four coupled ODEs?

 tpcl = @(xi,y) [y(2); ((1 + (y(2)*y(2)))^(1.5))*(y(3) - (A/(y(1)^3)))/sigma; -3*mu_l*y(4)/(rho_l*h_lv*(y(1)^3)); (Twall - Tsat - (Tsat*y(3)/(rho_l*h_lv)))/((y(1)/k_l) + R_int)];
 xi_step = 0:1e-8:xi_end;
 [XI,Y] = ode15s(tpcl,xi_step,[delta_ad deltaprime_ad delta_p_ad Q_ad]);

I tried both ode45 and ode15s, but the results are unrealistic/ The constants used here are as follows:

 A = 1e-20; 
 R_FC = 24.597; 
 c = 1; 
 sigma = 0.01; 
 rho_l = 1593.84; 
 k_l = 0.0544; 
 mu_l = 0.0004683;
 rho_v = 11.61; 
 h_lv = 88000;  
 Twall = 334; 
 Tsat = 329; 
 R_int = ((2 - c)/(2*c))*(Tsat^(1.5))*((2*pi*R_FC)^(0.5))/(rho_v*(h_lv^2));
 delta_ad = (A/(rho_l*h_lv*((Twall/Tsat) - 1)))^(1/3);
 deltaprime_ad = 0;
 delta_p_ad = A/(delta_ad^3);
 Q_ad = 0;
