Partial Differential Equation Toolbox

Solve partial differential equations using finite element analysis

Partial Differential Equation Toolbox™ provides functions for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) in 2D, 3D, and time using finite element analysis. It lets you specify and mesh 2D and 3D geometries and formulate boundary conditions and equations. You can solve static, time-domain, frequency-domain, and eigenvalue problems over the domain of the geometry. Functions for postprocessing and plotting results enable you to visually explore the solution.

You can use Partial Differential Equation Toolbox to solve PDEs from standard problems such as diffusion, heat transfer, structural mechanics, electrostatics, magnetostatics, and AC power electromagnetics, as well as custom, coupled systems of PDEs.
