Toolbox Capabilities

The MATLAB toolbox has the full capability of OnScale's multi-physics solvers. You can run any input file (*.flxinp) created in the OnScale. See our website for more information on the capabilities of OnScale.

Within the toolbox, it is also possible to create models fully within the MATLAB environment, from creating geometry to applying loads. Models are created using application specific toolboxes. Currently there is a general toolbox and an RF toolbox with more to come very soon! All of the capabilities for the current toolboxes are listed below.
