perm2sdt

Purpose

Read results from outputs of the PERMAS (V7.0) finite element code.

Syntax

 out = perm2sdt('Read Model_FileName')
 out = perm2sdt('Read Result_FileName')
 out = perm2sdt('merge',model)
 out = perm2sdt('binary.mtl Matrix_FileName')
 out = perm2sdt('ascii.mtl Matrix_FileName')

Description

The perm2sdtfunction reads PERMAS model, result and matrices files. Binary and ASCII files are supported.

filesModel files

To read a FE model, use the following syntax: model = perm2sdt('Read FileName')

To deal with sub-components, you may use the merge command.

Merging model

The merge command integrates subcomponents into the main model.

Result files

The syntax is

perm2sdt('read result_file')

Matrix files

perm2sdtreads binary and ASCII .mtl file format. The syntax is

perm2sdt('binary.mtl File.mtl') for binary files and perm2sdt('ascii.mtl File.mtl') for ASCII files.
