Unstructured Matlab 2D Mesh and Grid Generation using Triangle | FEATool

Triangle Mesh Generator GUI and CLI Integration with FEATool

FEATool-Triangle Mesh Generator Integration This update fully integrates J.R. Shewchuk’s fast and efficient 2D mesh and grid generator Triangle with FEATool [1][2][3]. Both Matlab and Octave command line interface (CLI) usage is supported with the gridgen_triangle function, as well as FEATool GUI usage with the …

Creating 3D Interactive Plotly Visualizations with Matlab | FEATool

Interactive 3D Data and Simulation Visualizations with Plotly and Matlab

FEATool can be used to easily generate interactive surface, contour, arrow, and other visualizations of unstructured mesh and simulation data in 1D, 2D, and 3D. As FEATool also supports Plotly as rendering and visualization engine it is possible to create, interactively explore, and share simulation and unstructured …

Matlab Plot and Visualization on Unstructured Meshes and Grids

Visualization and Postprocessing on Unstructured Grids and Meshes with FEATool Functions

This post explains how to use Matlab and the FEATool postprocessing function library to import, plot, and visualize general data on unstructured grids and meshes. Although Matlab and Octave do include visualization functionality for surface and contour plots (with the surf and contour functions), it is currently …

Automatic Unstructured Quadrilateral Matlab Grid Generation Framework

Automatic Unstructured Quadrilateral Grid Generation

QuadMesh is a Matlab and Octave cross compatible automatic and unstructured quadrilateral grid generation code, developed to be used with the FEATool Multiphysics Matab and Octave Finite Element simulation toolbox. Using quadrilateral grid cells are often advantageous to simplex or triangular cells in that they can …

Using the External Mesh Generator Triangle from Matlab and FEATool Multiphysics

Calling the External Grid Generator Triangle from FEATool

Please Note that the gridgen_triangle function has been updated and is now fully integrated with both the FEATool GUI and CLI. See the FEATool-Triangle Mesh Generator Integration post for more details. FEATool Multiphysics supports calling external programs for grid generation, solvers, and postprocessing directly from …

Creating Structured Finite Element Grids and Meshes

Creating Structured Grids Using FEATool Matlab Functions

FEATool includes and per default uses the distmesh grid generation routines to automatically generate simplical triangular or tetrahedral grids for implicit geometries. However, the computational finite element library in FEATool also supports FEM shape functions for structured grids (quadrilaterals in 2D and hexahedra …
