`Q2Post`

## Purpose

converts the vector of basic forces Q to cell array Post.Elem{}

## Synopsis

`Post = Q2Post (Model,Q)`

## Description

Q2POST converts the vector of basic forces Q to cell array Post.Elem{} POST = Q2POST(MODEL,Q) the function converts the basic force values in vector Q to the data structure POST consisting of the field Elem{el} for each el of the structural model in data structure MODEL which, in turn, contains the field Elem{el}.q with the basic forces of the particular element; the function uses information about missing basic forces in Q based on the field Model.Qmis; any missing basic forces are set to zero in Elem{el}.q
