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.)


    FEATool Multiphysics Toolbox available as MATLAB Add-On

  • 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.
