How to extract structural matrices (mass,stiffness...) from Ansys and import them into Matlab. Obtention of elementary cyclic symmetric matrices from an elementary sector in Ansys.

Abstract : The purpose of this note is to explain how to extract stiffness and mass matrices from Ansys. This can be useful for specific calculations with other codes such as Matlab. Section one focuses on structures featuring cyclic symmetric where the stiffness and mass matrices of only one elementary sector allow to obtain the global matrices. Section two presents the Ansys commands to obtain the binary files (.emat and .full files) containing the matrices. Section three is devoted to the interpretation of these files.
