In the above attached matlab code I am trying to find the position (x,y) coordinates from contour plot. I want to plot contour between 'Disp','eta_dom','epsilon_dom' for 'n_load'. I want to find maximum X (eta_dom) and Y (epsilon_dom) coordinate for different n_load=1,2....for max(summation displacement) (Z).
I am trying to plot n_load (x) vs max disp (y); n_load (x) vs max eta (y) and n_load (x) vs max epsilon (y). But here I am doubtful about results as my 'disp' is summed up, i am getting single maximum value only whereas I want each of the max displ for each of the summing load.

I don't really understand what you're trying to do if finding the maximum value isn't what you want.
The whole set of loops is confusingly unnecessary.
eta = eta_dom(end);
eps = epsilon_dom(end);
