Documentation


Help and demo links

The documentation is a work in progress. Not all functions have associated help files and not all functionality is covered by the demos. The help files currently cover about 50% of the functions and the demos mainly cover the use of FEBio.

The MATLAB integrated help

Follow the installation instructions to integrate and access GIBBON documentation from within MATLAB. The name for all function help files (the files that generate the help/documentation when published with MATLAB) starts with HELP_, all demo files start with DEMO_. This way users may explore/open/edit these files by typing open HELP_functionName or open DEMO_functionName in the MATLAB command window
