I need to convert a 2D code to 1D for a simply supported beam using matlab.
Does anyone have any experience regarding to this?

what exactly are you trying to do? Im not too clear...

I have a code for a simply supported beam in 2D which needs to be converted to 1D
More info in the attachments

Finite elements in matlab
Here's the main file, dispvalues and boundary conditions of the 2D programs which need to be converted to 1D
The beam has been posted above. Hoping for a quick reaction, I only have a few days left.

I'm not going to open your files, but why not just use the 2D code, and make the second dimension one?

I don't have any experience using matlab, I just got enrolled in this class, cause I followed other classes at the same time, which are finished now

Well, at some point there should be a file that contains loads and constants, etc. If the code is 2D, which I am really, really assuming that it's quasi2D, meaning that it treats the second dimension as just a thickness; a constant.
Basically, just set the beam depth, to 1. 1 whatever units you're using. Then, the load gets multiplied by 1, and the stresses get divided by 1. Your answer will be the same as if it were 1D.

At school I heared a stiffness matrix should be inserted and the boundary conditions and dispvalues should be different?
