hello
try this :
a = '11:21:17.155';
n = split(a,':');
duration_seconds = str2num(n{1})*3600+str2num(n{2})*60+str2num(n{3})

a = '11:21:17.155';
b = [60*60,60,1]*str2double(split(a,':'))
b =
40877.155

format longG
a = '11:21:17.155';
b = seconds(duration(a,'InputFormat','hh:mm:ss.SSS'))
results in:
b =
40877.155

The most efficient solution:
a = '11:21:17.155';
b = [60*60,60,1]*sscanf(a,'%f:')
b =
40877.155
