This function is to compute and plot Modal Assurance Criterion (MAC) matrix between identified mode shapes.

The MAC equation mAc= (abs(Phi1'*Phi2))^2/((Phi1'*Phi1)*(Phi2'*Phi2))
in your function practically gives the right answer but theoretically, it should read the following:
MatLAB transpose of a complex-valued array is not only a transpose but also complex conjugate. What I meant is Phi1' is actually not only transpose of Phi1 but also its complex conjugate.
It looks good.
How can we calculate crossMAC?
There is basically no instruction to go along with this, so good luck figuring out what to do and what goes where. There's one example, but so deconstructed and without context that it does not matter. If the author is still active, I highly recommend he add some sort of tutorial - or at least a proper explanation - to this file so that people who want to use it know what they are doing.
How can we calculate MAC between damaged and undamaged structures mode shapes?
Unzip all files to the same folder then run the code.
It doesn't work, the error is:
"Not enough input arguments.
Error in MAC (line 11)
Can you help me?
How to get the modal shape matrix in Abaqus?
There is a mat file in the zip file you download. This file contains the data.
Can someone provide a demo data as an example to learn and implement it?

Make sure that you save MAC.m and ModeShapes.mat in the same folder and set that folder as MATLAB working directory or add a path to it. Then: load ModeShapes.mat;MAC_Matrix=MAC(phi)
it doesnot work, can u help me?
Thank's a lot!
It was very usefull during in course os structural dynamics.
