# I want to make several matrices from variables taken from user in a loop while performing some operation on them. I have attached a simplified code for my problem. So I want matrices from 1 to k but it is not working. Guide plz

for i=1:k %loop for data input of k layers
E1(i)=input ('Enter E1 ');
E2(i)=input ('Enter E2 ');
v12(i)=input ('Enter v12 ');
G12(i)=input ('Enter G12 ');
%calculation of paramters for the same layer
a(i)=E1(i)+E2(i)^2;
b(i)=E1(i)+E2(i);
c(i)=E1(i)+2*v12(i));
d(i)=E1(i)+2*G12(i);
e(i)=E2(i)-E1(i);
f(i)=v12+G12;
%stacking them in a matrix for that layer
Matrix(i)=[a(i) b(i) c(i); c(i) d(i) e(i); d(i) e(i) f(i)]
end

Try this out.
maxLoops = 10; % set this value
matrixCollection = cell(maxLoops,1); % Initialize matrix collection
for i = 1:maxLoops,
% get inputs
% perform calculations
% stacking them in a matrix for that layer
matrixCollection{i}=[a(i) b(i) c(i); c(i) d(i) e(i); d(i) e(i) f(i)];
end
Each matrix will be stored within cells of the cell array called matrixCollection.
Hope this helps.
