Hi, I'm Aerospace engineer. I try to compile this code but in the last part of it, appears that error. I dont understand where is the mistake. I have added such code in this message, and hope that someone give me an help. Thank you. Bye

Ok...I will do it. Thank you for suggestions.

This is certainly possible in Mathematica but it would take a complete understanding of the subject rather than of Mathematica itself. Only you can solve this... Here are some suggestions after inspecting your code: 1. try to localise the variables within a Module or by using With or Block (look in the documentation) 2. use as much as possible Table, Map, etc.. to create loops rather than For-Next. escape the loops with Sow/reap or collect results with Throw/Catch. (again, see the docs)

Sorry, but now I have another problem with the same code. I would like to do an external cycle on the r variable, so for each cycle in i variable I would like to change the value of r. I not be able to do it. I attached the code. Thank you


Grazie Mille!!!!

In the equations you try to solve, the muF1 contains a function Re

In[146]:= \[Mu]F1

Out[146]= 0.0119846 ((-3.03928 + 0. I) + (78.5811 + 0. I) d - 
   980.429 d^2 + 4199.85 d^3) Derivative[1][
  Re][(-3.03928 + 0. I) d + (39.2905 + 0. I) d^2 - 326.81 d^3 + 
   1049.96 d^4]

Where you define F1, eliminate the Re as follows (it is not needed)

F1 = Integrate[
    f, {x, 0, 2 \[Pi]/qbest}, {y, 0, 2 \[Pi] Sqrt[3]/qbest}]/area;

The muF1 will no longer contain Re' and will now be as follows:

0.0119846 ((-3.03928 + 0. I) + (78.5811 + 0. I) d - 980.429 d^2 + 
   4199.85 d^3)

If you now solve your equation it works fine:

In[154]:= FindRoot[{\[Mu]F1 == \[Mu]fliq, 
  PF1 == Pliq}, {{d, 0.167}, {n01, 0.001}}]

Out[154]= {d -> 0.183252 + 0. I, n01 -> 0.168551 + 0. I}

I attached the corrected nb
