excellent that did answer my question however I am trying to use this as a simultaneous loop. My guess is using the parfor command:
function [x]= displacementsi(i,z,nx,ny) m=5 n=3
j=reshape(repmat(1:n, m, 1), n*m, 1)
I get this error
??? Error: File: displacementsi.m Line: 5 Column: 8 Expression or statement is incomplete or incorrect.
Error in ==> fe_test at 112 [x] = displacementsi(i,displacements,nx,ny);
