Defining the boundary conditions

The visualization of the model boundary shows colors for each side of the cube. These labels can be used to define boundary conditions.

%Define supported node set

F_pressure=fliplr(Fb(Cb==2,:));

Quick viewing of the FEBio input file structure

The febView function can be used to view the xml structure in a MATLAB figure window.

febView(febio_spec); %Viewing the febio file febView(febio_spec)

Exporting the FEBio input file

Exporting the febio_spec structure to an FEBio input file is done using the febioStruct2xml function.

febioStruct2xml(febio_spec,febioFebFileName); %Exporting to file and domNode

Running the FEBio analysis

To run the analysis defined by the created FEBio input file the runMonitorFEBio function is used. The input for this function is a structure defining job settings e.g. the FEBio input file name. The optional output runFlag informs the user if the analysis was run succesfully.

febioAnalysis.run_filename=febioFebFileName; %The input file name
febioAnalysis.run_logname=febioLogFileName; %The name for the log file
febioAnalysis.disp_on=1; %Display information on the command window
febioAnalysis.disp_log_on=1; %Display convergence information in the command window
febioAnalysis.runMode='external';%'internal';
febioAnalysis.t_check=0.25; %Time for checking log file (dont set too small)
febioAnalysis.maxtpi=1e99; %Max analysis time
febioAnalysis.maxLogCheckTime=10; %Max log file checking time
