Finite element cloud-based simulation toolbox for MATLAB


  • Simple and easy-to-use toolbox enabling complex FEA simulations
  • Powerful multiphysics solvers for acoustic and piezoelectric applications 
  • Access to cloud HPC to parallelize simulation sweeps
  • Integrates with Optimization Toolbox


The OnScale toolbox gives users the ability to build, submit, and post-process acoustic and piezoelectric time-domain simulations all from within the MATLAB® environment. The toolbox is designed to give engineers more freedom and customization in their simulation workflows and to provide a user-friendly way for non-native OnScale users to build and run models easily within a single script. The combination of our CAE software tools and a scalable cloud HPC platform enables MATLAB users to execute massive design of experiments.

This add-on allows users to run OnScale simulations via the MATLAB environment using the OnScale API. The toolbox can also work in conjunction with MATLAB toolboxes such as the Optimization Toolbox, combining OnScale's solver capability and cloud computing with expansive function base of MATLAB.

OnScale’s toolbox for MATLAB enables you to:

  • Set up finite element simulations using simple functions
  • Use existing CAD files or build geometries from primitive shapes
  • Visualize full geometry and boundary condition setup
  • Drive existing OnScale simulation scripts from MATLAB
  • Learn from built-in documentation with predefined user examples
  • Access scalable cloud hardware to submit hundreds or thousands of simulations
  • Use the powerful MATLAB numerical engine with the post-processing class
  • Run automatic batch post-processing to extract key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • Use functions to execute Monte Carlo analysis on simulation designs
  • Run genetic algorithm optimization studies using Optimization Toolbox
