MATFEAP is a MATLAB interface to the academic finite element code [FEAP]. A successor to the earlier FEAPMEX interface, it uses a socket connection to communicate via a lightweight protocol with a FEAP server interface.

Starting in Fall 2016, I am advertising a project to build a Jupyter notebook interface to the personal version of FEAP (FEAPpv) to make it easy to use FEAP as an instructional tool by launching cloud instances. If you are interested reading this, let me know!
