A novel software is presented to connect Abaqus, a sophisticated finite element package, with Matlab, the most comprehensive program for mathematical analysis.
This interface between these well-known codes not only benefits from the image processing and the integrated graph-plotting features of Matlab, but opens up new opportunities in results post-processing, statistical analysis and mathematical optimization, among many other possibilities.
Abaqus2Matlab is freely distributed as source code with the aim of facilitating research.
Welcome to Abaqus2Matlab
The authors of this package are very much open to any recommendations, observations, bug reports, comments (positive or negative), which will be used as feedback to improve the toolbox in future versions
