How to integrate dataset over a certain domain ?

3 views (last 30 days)
clear all
close all
clc
load data.txt
S_v = data(:,2);
T = data (:,1);
I_H = trapz(S_v); %Spectral_Intensity
Here it integrates over the whole domain. But how can I integrate within the specified range ?

Perhaps:
load data.txt
S_v = data(:,2);
T = data (:,1);
Trange = (T >= 0.1) & (T <= 2.5);
I_H = trapz(T(Trange), S_v(Trange)); %Spectral_Intensity
will do what you want. (Not able to test it without ‘data.txt’.)
Do not use clear or clc. It is simply inefficient.

@Star Strider Thank you so much. I just want to ask that for such integration using trapz command is completely okay? Because I'm calculating all these things for earthquake engineering.

As always, my pleasure!
With vectors or arrays, the trapz funciton is the only option. The other integration functions require function handle arguments, and integrate the functions themselves between specific limits.
