A Novel Technique for solving non-linear Partial Differential Equation (PDE) under varying conditions

Hameed Ullah Khan, M. Yaqoob Wani, S. T. Rehman


Artificial Neural Network (ANN), particularly radial basis function (RBF) is used to solve the Partial Differential Equations (PDE) instead of using explicit finite differences method (EFDM). Temperature distribution for an incompressible viscoelastic PTT fluid in a die is obtained on the basis of varying conditions of variables. Its result was compared with other methods. It is better than other methods (as less error, better in space and time complexity).
