I am trying to calculate energy using the folowing code , the matrices elements2s, nodes2s was the results of another script.
clc
clear all
% Initial data:
TubeLength = 3.38e-9; %m
TubeDiameter = 1.011e-9; %m
D = 3; %degrees of freedom at each node
presc_disp=1e-9; %m
L=0.141e-9; %m Length of a C-C bond
numIterations=1; %number of iterations
numNaN=0;
% %%%%% the ref .
%%Force constants from Tserpes et al. (2005):
% Kr is EA=6.52e-7 %N·nm^-1
% ktheta is EI=8.76e-10 %N·nm·rad^-2
% ktao is GJ=2.78e-10 %N·nm·rad^-2
EA=L*652 %N
EI=L*8.76e-19 %N·m^2·rad^-2
GJ=L*2.78e-19 %N·m^2·rad^-2
% Transformation to nondimensional space:
% [F]=EI/L^2; [L]=L. Then, multiply the resulting forces with
% EI/L^2 and displacements with L to get forces in MN and
% displacements in nm.
Lreal=L;
EIreal=EI;
presc_disp_real=presc_disp;
EA=EA/EI*L^2;
GJ=GJ/EI;
presc_disp=presc_disp/L;

EI=1;
% Stiffness matrix of a C-C bond (adapted to 3 DOF):

can anyone help me please
many thanks in advance

Walter Roberson, I can understand you but I have Null matrices as a results of young modulus , and other variables , and this is a wrong results in physics . In fact I dont know what I will do , may be I should start with another code.
I do appreciate your help and thank you very much.

Can you show the values of the nodes and elements data?
