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.
