Thermo-mechanical analysis ( Heat transfer due to radiation and convection)

I know you place tremendous value on your time so I’ll be brief.
I am trying to do a thermo-mechanical analysis of a closed region (H=75cm). In this region, at the bottom, the Temperature is around 700 degree. A structural beam is placed at the height of 25 cm from the bottom surface in closed region.
I want to simulate the heat transfer from the bottom surface to beam due to convection (because air is there as a medium in closed region) and radiation.

Can anyone please help me in running the below program using Matlab R2015 a version?

I am having older version of matlab and I want to run the below program which can be solved in Matlab R2015 a version.

clear all
rotm1=[1 0 0;0 1 0;0 0 1];
rotm2=[1 1 0;-1 1 0;0 0 1];
rotm3=[1 1 1;-1 1 0;-1 -1 2];
eulXYZ2= rotm2eul(rotm2,'XYZ')
eulXYZ3= rotm2eul(rotm3,'XYZ')

If anyone have Malab R2015 a version, please solve the above program for me and send me the results.

Thanks in advance

B-Spline and NURBS

Hi Dears

I have a question about B-Spline or NURBS. Assume that we have a X(u)=sig(Ri,p(u)).Xi that Xi are the control points and Ri,p are the rational basis functions. When I choose a parametric variable like ui according to control point by interpolation I can find the X(ui), now the question is this that can I find the parametric variable according to having an spatial X(u)??? It means that can I find the parametric variable that have resulted a spatial X(u) that I have it???
thanks for your attention.

Dynamic friction in sheared fault gouge: implications of acoustic vibration on triggering and slow slip†

Friction and deformation in granular fault gouge are among various dynamic interactions associated with seismic phenomena that have important implications for slip mechanisms on earthquake faults. To this end, we propose a mechanistic model of granular fault gouge subject to acoustic vibrations and shear deformation. The grain-scale dynamics is described by the Shear-Transformation-Zone theory of granular flow, which accounts for irreversible plastic deformation in terms of flow defects whose density is governed by an effective temperature.
