Re: Mathcad

Yes, Mathcad can use data files. Mathcad can load a data file like axial loads and moments of a structure taken from an analysis program then design the footings,columns using these data and formulas created in Mathcad.

Can anyone discuss the ease of ( if possible) of importing data files
and worksheets from Excel.

I would say MathCAD is likely more useful...unless you are doing
stiffness
method by hand and need to do manipulation of large matricies and lots
of
matrix math.  MathCAD allows for graphical calculation sheets (i.e. you
can
create functional forumula that are visible).  This of Excel to some
degree
except all the forumlas are visable and function...not hidden in cells).
Matlab is primarily aimed at doing serious matix math, but can do
"regular"
math too...but is not as graphical (i.e. see the formulas) as
MathCAD...at
least the last time I used it.

Is Mathcad or Matlab more useful for structural engineering?  I haven't
used
either, what is the difference?
