Hi Mary and Masoomeh,
there are plenty of good reasons why one could lightly couple FLUKA with any other numerical code, as for example to compute variation in the material density in particular region. Ofter Finite-Elements codes for thermo-mechanical studies have a natural Matlab interface.

The important part is to define the correct scripts and locking mechanism to handle the simulation loop.

In our case we performed a soft-coupling FLUKA of with LSDYNA using Matlab in Linux.

Matlab can easily run bash scripts.
The procedure in not technically difficult but requires a bit of scripting karma.
