How can I create a geometry in matlab which I can export to FEA software for analysis?

16 views (last 30 days)
I created a 2D model in MATLAB using the coordinate of the boundaries (See the attached picture). Currently, it is saved as figure file in MATLAB. I want to import this model to a meshing software to create mesh and from there to an FEA software (Abaqus) for FEA analysis and import it back to MATLAB for optimization. Please, how can I achieve this? Thank you.

Should be able to import it into the Mathworks PDE toolbox or FEATool Multiphysics, mesh, and export the resulting mesh (or you could potentially just use the FEA capabilities in the toolboxes if they are sufficient for your application).

These file exchange submissions seem like a good starting point for your use-case to export MATLAB-created geometry to a STL file.
