I need to import in Matlab the results (like time histories of diplacement or frequency response at a specific point) obtained from a FEM analysis in Nastran.
At the moment I ask Nastran to save the results on a file .dat and then I upload this file into Matlab. The fact is that Nastran organizes the data in a way that is not easy to work with, therefore I have to manually re-organize the file before loading it in Matlab.
Is there a more fast and efficient way to do this operation?
Are there toolboxes already implemented in Matlab that are compatible with FEM software outputs?
