Subject: Area of hysteresis loops From: Etienne O'Brien Date: 18 Nov, 2010 17:41:04 Message: 1 of 13 
Please could I have help determining the area of series (30+) of hysteresis loops from experimental data? My data is plotted as Load (L) on the y axis against Displacement (D) on the x axis. I used the peakdet function (http://billauer.co.il/peakdet.html) to generate new variables which provide the indices for the minima and maxima of my experimental data. My specific questions are:

Thank you very much Sean for this code and your comments. I got it to work. I am lucky to receive advice from someone doing similar tests.
