FEATool Multiphysics
- Matlab CFD Toolbox

Dedicated CFD Solvers

FEATool includes both built-in Navier-Stokes solvers for stationary and transient flows, as well
as interfaces with the external FEM-CFD solver FeatFlow and the general FEM solver FEniCS.
This allows one to perform large scale high performance CFD simulations directly from the
Matlab GUI interface. In particular FEniCS can be used to perform parallel HPC-CFD direct
numerical simulations (DNS), as for example done here with flow over an aircraft wing

CFD Toolbox Features

CFD GUI Toolbox for Matlab and Octave

Built-in preprocessing, solvers, postprocessing and visualization
Pre-defined multiphysics modes for incompressible fluid flow, porous media flows, heat
and mass transport, and structural mechanics couplings
Built-in stationary and time-dependent solvers with stabilization of convective effects
(artificial diffusion)
Easily customizable equations and non-linear coefficients
External CFD and HPC solver support for FeatFlow and FEniCS
Special stable finite element FEM shape functions for fluid flows

Plotly Interactive CFD Visualization

With the Plotly FEATool integration interactive visualization, postprocessing, and result sharing
via the web and Plotly cloud services is fully supported.
Matlab CFD Toolbox

The FEATool Multiphysics and Octave and Matlab CFD Toolbox makes it easy to set up and
solve complex computational fluid dynamics problems directly in Matlab.

Performing complex CFD simulations in Matlab and Octave have never been so easy. With
FEATool, time-dependent and stationary fluid mechanics simulation and flow engineering
problems can be defined and quickly set up directly in the convenient graphical user interface
(GUI). Moreover, with multiphysics, the pressure and flow field can be coupled to different
physical phenomena such as mass and chemical transport, and heat transfer models allowing
for complex CFD simulations such as multiphase and reactive flows to defined and simulated
with ease. Also, with the higher order FEM elements complex quantities such as aerodynamic
lift and drag forces can be evaluated very precisely.

Fluid Dynamics Tutorials and Examples

FEATool includes many CFD specific tutorial models for stationary and dynamic types of fluid
flow problems, multi-phase flows, and coupled fluid-multiphysics problems, for example

CFD benchmark and validation test cases

Incompressible fluid flows in 2D, 3D, and Axisymmetry

Coupled heat transfer and fluid flow through natural convection

Two-Phase flows with immiscible fluids

Multiphysics for Fluid Dynamics

The 15 easy to use pre-defined FEATool physics modes makes it easy to set up coupled and
complex fluid flow problems in any dimension, such as heat and mass transport problems, fluid-
structure interaction (FSI), and porous media flows.

In addition, as FEATool can parse general nonlinear string expressions, including dependent
variables and derivatives, one can define complex equation coefficients without any
programming or user defined functions by simply typing in the expression as normally written
on paper. This can for example be used to quickly define non-Newtonian fluids by modifying the
viscosity coefficient.
