These are questions asked by fkohlhepp

I have a function that refuses to allow "fsolve" to compute a root for.  I'm trying to use a brute force Newton (or secant) algorithm to find the root.  This is successful 

But I'm new enough in Maple Flow (and Maple) that I can't build an automatic recursion method.  All ideas welcome.

I have two plots that I want to overlay.  I can do that, but I want the units to be in english units ("lbf" instead of "N" for force).  Individually each plot will switch the units, but the "display" command throws an error!  Help, please.

I'm new to Maple Flow.  As an exercise I'm replicating a calculation I did in Mathcad, building a blade element model of a hovering helicopter.  The physics is well documented, but any specific design changes the results. 

The lift and drag values of the airfoil of choice and the blade physical geometry are used to solve for the forces generated at any radial segment, these are integrated along the blade radius to compute the rotor thrust and torque.  These integrals are taking an inordinate amount of time--one blade angle setting took fifteen minutes to compute rotor thrust and torque.  Since the next step is to compute these values over a range of blade angles this poses a significant problem.

I'd post the file if I could figure out how!!

I'm trying to move to Maple Flow after a long time using Mathcad.  (Long enough that I remember when Maple was the symbolic engine in Mathcad.)  So I'm looking for the user's forum (like the old collaboratory), and I thought that MaplePrimes might be that resource.  Under the heading of "Products" I find a list of many different programs--every version of Maple and MapleSim--but Maple Flow is not to be found.

I decided to ask why, only to discover that it magically appears when the question window asks me to "categorize your question" to get it answered faster.  So I guess my question really is, "How do I find information  and questions specific to Maple Flow?"

How can I specify english units as the default in Flow?  Rather than Newtons (N), pound force (lbf)?
