For i=1:numel(t_vec)
y(1)=Y(i,1);
y(2)=Y(i,2);
y(3)=Y(i,3);
y(4)=Y(i,4);
t=t_vec(i);
dy=vib_equ(t,y,c_s_f,c_s_r,v_val,F_d_val,m_c,I_g_c,l,l_f,l_r,u_f,u_f_dot,v,L,i_d);
Y_acc(i,1) = dy(2);
Y_acc(i,2) = dy(4);
end

does not work ?

(Of course you will have to supply the correct values for the variables in your calling list to vib_equ)

Or use the OutputFcn facility during the computation with ode45.

Best wishes
Torsten.
