Hi in this program I take data from an excel file, interpolate them with a spline, this part of the code doesn't appear because it works. The problem here is that a certain point we should enter in the if cycle with the last value of i and start another calculation, until the index j arrives to Nt, but the program never enter in the if cycle, even if the if statement is true, I don't know why?. maybe i should choose a comlpletely different structure using while, but how can I index the variables with while ?
kind regards
Francesco Renzulli
P.S I have the latest version of matlab
for i=1:Nt-1
H_t_e(i) = ppval(H_ts,T(i));% ppval per valutare il polinomio
dQ(i)=m_vap(i)*H_t_e(i);
Cp_liq_e(i)=ppval(Cp_liqs,T(i));
dT(i)=(-dQ(i))/(m_liq(i)*Cp_liq_e(i));
T(i+1)=T(i)+dT(i);
rho_liq_e(i)=ppval(rho_liqs,T(i+1));
rho_vap_e(i)=ppval(rho_vaps,T(i+1));
P_tank(i)=ppval(P_vaps,T(i+1));
P_cham(i)=0.4*P_tank(i);
m_dot_liq(i)=N*A_orifice*sqrt((2*rho_liq_e(i)*(P_tank(i)-P_cham(i)))/2.0);
m_tot(i+1)=m_tot(i)-m_dot_liq(i)*dt(i);
m_liq(i+1)=m_liq(i)-m_dot_liq(i)*dt(i);
m_vap(i+1)=+m_liq(i+1)-((V_tank-(m_tot(i)/rho_vap_e(i)))/((1/rho_liq_e(i))-(1/rho_vap_e(i))));
if m_liq(i+1)>m_liq(i)
for j=i:Nt
P_tank(j)=ppval(P_vaps,T(j));
C_liq_eg(j)=ppval(Cp_liqs,T(j));
rho_vap_e(j)=ppval(rho_vaps,T(j));
Z(j)=ppval(Zs,T(j));
m_dot_vap(j)=N*A_orifice*sqrt((2*rho_vap_e(j)*(P_tank(j)-P_cham))/C_liq_eg(j));
m_vap(j+1)=m_vap(j)-m_dot_vap(j)*dt;
m_tot(j+1)=m_tot(j)-m_dot_vap(j)*dt;
Z1(j+1)=0.9*Z(j);
T1(j+1)=T(j)*(((Z1(j+1)*m_vap(j+1))/Z(j)*m_vap(j))^(gamma-1));
Z2(j+1)=(Z(j)*m_vap(j)*((T(j+1)-T(j))^(1/(gamma-1))))/m_vap(j+1);
T2(j+1)=T(j)*(((Z2(j+1)*m_vap(j+1))/Z(j)*m_vap(j))^(gamma-1));
Z3(j+1)=(Z(j)*((T(j+1)-T(j))^(1/(gamma-1))))/m_vap(j+1);
T(j+1)=T(j)*(((Z3(j+1)*m_vap(j+1))/Z(j)*m_vap(j))^(gamma-1));
end
end
end

yeah beacuase it is a simulation of a tank that has vapour and liquid inside, so at a certain iteration m_liquid would become negative and so the statement shold be verified
and when it is verified, it never enters the if cycle

Hi Francesco,
The best workaround in such situations is to place a breakpoint where you feel the problem is and check all the variables and their values there.
For example, in your case, you should place a breakpoint at if m_liq(i+1)>m_liq(i) and then check the values of m_liq(i+1) and m_liq(i).
You can find out how to set breakpoints here.
