Hi, the fitting function "y = p1/(1+Exp(p2+p3*x)+p4*x)^p5" is pretty good for all data set, where y=L, x=T

You can start using curve fitting toolbox, cftool that is quite straightforward and does not require any addional coding.

An alternative way is the least squares method for that you have you data ready. You'd need to generate Vandermonde matrix and then compute the fit model coefficients.

@Mushtaq Al-Jubbori. What I did was to find where the flat part starts and fit the data to the left of that to an exponential growth curve. As an output you have the location where the flat part starts and the coefficients of the exponential fitted equation. Try this (click the copy icon in the upper right of the code block below and then paste into MATLAB):

clc; % Clear command window.

fprintf('Running %s.m ...\n', mfilename);

clear; % Delete all variables.

close all; % Close all figure windows except those created by imtool.

workspace; % Make sure the workspace panel is showing.

Here's what I put together. This is only for the T5-L5 data. You can repeat this for the rest of the data and build up the plot with the remaining points and lines.

L5=[3 3.4 3.8 4.4 5.2 6 6.8 8 9.2 10.8 12.8 15 16.4 17.4 17.8 17.6 17.8 17.8 17.6 17.8 17.8];%4.85MeV

T5=[2:0.5:7.5 7.7 8:0.5:10.5 11.5 12];

threshold = 0.2; % adjust accordingly

% find elbow (index where curve transitions to flat line)

elbow = find(diff(L5) < threshold, 1);

% plot markers, set axis limits

plot(T5, L5, 'or', 'markerfacecolor', 'r');

ax = gca;

ax.YLim = [0 20];

ax.XLim = [0 15];

% plot flat line

x1 = T5(elbow); x2 = T5(end);

y1 = mean(L5(elbow):L5(end)); y2 = y1;

line([x1 x2], [y1 y2], 'color', 'r', 'linewidth', 1.5);

hold on;

% plot curved line using polynomial fit

x = T5(1:elbow);

ySample = L5(1:elbow);

pf = polyfit(x,ySample,5); % order 5 looks pretty good

y = polyval(pf, x)

y(end) = L5(elbow); % ensure curved line meets flat line

plot(x, y, 'r', 'linewidth', 1.5);

This nonlinear least squares fit gives quite nice fit models:

...

x = T2;

y = L2;

p = [1, 3]; % Guess: Fit model parameters

q = [-1, -3]; % Guess: Fit model parameters

plot(x,y,'r*')

xlabel 't'

ylabel 'Response'

p = optimvar('p',2);

q = optimvar('q',2);

fun = p(1)*(1+exp(q(1)+q(2)*x) + p(2)*x).^-0.65;

obj = sum((fun - y).^2);

LSQ_Prob = optimproblem("Objective",obj);

x0.p = [1/2, 5/2];

x0.q = [-1/2,-5/2];

show(LSQ_Prob) % Display the problem formulation and parameters

[Sol,fval] = solve(LSQ_Prob,x0) % Show the results

figure

FM_val = evaluate(fun,Sol);

plot(x,y,'r*', x, FM_val,'b-')

legend('Original Data','Fitted Curve', 'location', 'southeast')

xlabel('T')

ylabel('L & Fit Model')

title("Data vs. Fitted Model Response")

SStot = sum((y-mean(y)).^2);

SSres = sum((y-FM_val).^2);

Rsq = 1 - SSres/SStot;

gtext(['R^2 = ' num2str(Rsq)])

gtext(['Fit model: ' num2str(Sol.p(1)) '*(1+exp(' num2str(Sol.q(1)) ' + ' num2str(Sol.q(2)) '*x) + ' num2str(Sol.p(2)) '*x).^{-0.65}'])

fprintf('Found fit model is: %f *(1+exp(%f+%f*x) + %f*x)^-0.65 \n', [Sol.p(1), Sol.q(1), Sol.q(2), Sol.p(2)])

OK, fine. Then use the piecewise function I gave you, or use ad hoc function mysteriously found by that third party software.

but you may need to upgrade your MATLAB, as you said.
