• For E=0.1, when I try to solve

sol = NDSolve[{pdeset, bcAll}, {U, T}, {t, 0, 5}, {x, 0, 4 Pi}]

I get this error NDSolve::bcedge: "Boundary condition U[t,10]==0 is not specified on a single edge of the boundary of the computational domain"

• How to plot Derivative[0, 1][T][t, x] as x->0 vs t (0...Pi) for E=0.1,0.2,0.3?
• You asked a question, accepted an answer, then modified the question and unaccepted the answer. How many times do you plan to do that? Mar 10, 2015 at 19:59

fixing the Cos typo and making a bold decision that the xrange ends at 4 Pi not 10

 ClearAll["Global*"];
pdeset = {Derivative[1, 0][U][t, x] == Derivative[0, 2][U][t, x],
Derivative[1, 0][T][t, x] ==
Derivative[0, 2][T][t, x] + E Derivative[0, 1][U][t, x]^2}
ics = {U[0, x] == 0, T[0, x] == 0};
bcs = {U[t, 0] == Cos[t], U[t, 4 Pi] == 0,T[t, 0] == 1, T[t, 4 Pi] == 0};

sol = NDSolve[{pdeset, bcAll}, {U, T}, {t, 0, 5}, {x, 0, 4 Pi}];


(* NDSolve::ibcinc: Warning: boundary and initial conditions are inconsistent. *)

The warning is because you have specified both U and T to be simultaneously 0 and 1 at the origin. You get a solution but it obviously doesn't satisfy both conditions.

this figure shows but U and T with red lines indicating the prescribed boundary conditions. Plot[Evaluate[  (D[(T /. First@sol)[t, x], x]) /. x -> 0 ], {t, 0, 5}] After correcting some syntax errors and setting consistent boundary conditions:

• @MMM The ics and the bcs should be coherent Nov 27, 2013 at 3:20
• Dear @belisarius, I am still hoping to learn how to plot Derivative[0, 1][T][t, x] as x->0 vs t (0...Pi) for e=0.1,0.2,0.3?
