MAT-fem has been written thinking about the joint interaction of GiD with MATLAB. GiD allows manipulating geometries and discretizations, writing the file as MATLAB need it. Through MATLAB the calculation program is executed, without losing the MATLAB advantages. Finally GiD gathers the output data files for its graphical visualization and interpretation.
This scheme allows understanding in detail the execution a Finite Elements program, following step by step each one of the code lines if it is desired, to the time that is possible to heighten examples that by their dimensions would fall outside any program with educative aims.
