Using Matlab to extract data from FE output file

Using Matlab to extract data from FE output file

Using Matlab to extract data from FE output file

(OP)
Can anyone offer suggestions on where to look for the following:

I'm trying to write a script that will search through a Finite Element output file and print axial force values for specific element ID numbers.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris

RE: Using Matlab to extract data from FE output file

You didn't provide ANY detail about what form your FEA results are in, so the general idea is:

inx = strmatch(EID_you want,EIDS)

axial_stress = EIDS(inx,column_of_axial_stress)

Sorry,

The output is NX Nastran Ouput and there are multiple subcases and element types.

Thanks for all your help.
