    Abstract

    The microcomputer implementation of the numerical solution of nonlinear differential equations using collocation and Galerkin methods, with a Newton search, is considered. One example of large deflections of a tapered cantilever is solved in detail to provide a parametric study of the numerical variables. The results indicate that the Gauss point collocation scheme is the most efficient, the least affected by precision, and so well suited to small office computers. (Author abstract. ) Refs.
