# linearizeOutput

## Syntax

## Description

`linearizeOutput(`

adds all degrees of freedom (DoFs) associated with the region defined by
`model`

,`RegionType`

,`RegionID`

)`RegionType`

and `RegionID`

to the output vector of
the linearized model. For 3-D structural models, `linearizeOutput`

adds all
*x*-coordinates first, then all *y*-coordinates, then
all *z*-coordinates. In the linearized model `sys`

, use
`sys.OutputGroup`

to locate the sections associated with each
coordinate.

Use `linearizeInput`

and `linearizeOutput`

together with the `linearize`

function
to extract sparse linear models from structural and thermal models.

`linearizeOutput(`

specifies which of the coordinates to include.`model`

,`RegionType`

,`RegionID`

,"Component",`xyz`

)

returns a structure array `output`

= linearizeOutput(___)`output`

with the linearization output
description. Use this syntax with any of the previous arguments.
