The FEATool Multiphysics Toolbox can be installed directly from the
MATLAB APPS and Add-On Toolbar, the MathWorks File Exchange, or
downloaded directly from here
In order to use the FEATool toolbox the included files and directories
must be installed on the intended computer system, and also added to
the MATLAB search paths so that they can be found by the MATLAB
interpreter. It is recommended to first uninstall any old versions of
FEATool before updating to a newer version.
The FEATool Multiphysics simulation toolbox is written in the m-script
language, which requires or MATLAB to
run. FEATool has been verified work with Windows, Mac, and Linux
systems running MATLAB versions 7.9 R2009b and later. Furthermore, a
system with 4GB or more RAM memory is recommended.
To install, download and extract the FEATool Multiphysics archive.
For MATLAB 2012b and later double click on the FEATool
Multiphysics.mlappinstall file, or use the Get More Apps button
in the MATLAB APPS toolbar. Once the app has been installed, a
corresponding icon will be available in the toolbar to start
FEATool. (Note that MATLAB may not give any indication of the app
installation progress or completion.)
For MATLAB 2009b-2012a, copy the featool.p file to a directory
accessible to MATLAB (optionally, copy the other included files such
as the binary files, and source and function files to support
Command Line CLI usage). Then enter
featool on the
MATLAB command line to start the application.
Please note that FEATool may take a few seconds to load and show the
GUI on initial startup.
To get started with FEATool you can try out some of the available example models
and video tutorials.
