Chapter 6

Arrays, Vectors, and Matrices

Abstract

An understanding of vectors and matrices can make engineering calculations much more effective. PTC Mathcad performs many complex vector and matrix operations. This chapter will not delve into all of these operations. The purpose of this chapter is to illustrate the benefits that can be had by using simple vectors and matrices in technical calculations.

Arrays are useful tools in engineering calculations. PTC Mathcad can do very advanced matrix computations. This chapter focused mostly on using arrays to perform multiple iterations of engineering expressions.
