Routine to extract data from FAST output files

Dear All

I would like to ask if a colleague can share with me a routine to extract data from FAST output files which have a distribution of the parameter along the blade element discretization (i.e. files like lift, drag, alfa, Vaxial, and others).
Maybe somebody already has a routine in Matlab or Python to extract data from these type of files for ploting.

Thanks in advance.

Dear Arturo,

The NREL provided MATLAB toolbox ( has generally functionality for reading in data from FAST output files for plotting and other post-processing. Also, the MATLAB-based post-processors MCrunch, MLife, and MExtremes support wind-turbine specific post-processing functionality.

Best regards,
