## PURPOSE

Calculates the number of up/downcrossings of a load.

## DESCRIPTION

```   LOAD2UD Calculates the number of up/downcrossings of a load.

CALL: [Nup,Ndown,u] = udcross([a b n],L);

where

Nup   = the number of upcrossings of level  u_i,
Ndown = the number of downcrossings of level  u_i,
u     = a one column matrix with levels  u_i,
a,b   = limits for  u,  a <= u_i <= b,
n     = the number of levels  u_i,
L     = a two column matrix with times in the first column and

Note that the parameter matrix can be used as input.```

## CROSS-REFERENCE INFORMATION
