Minimum Subscription Required:

How to access this item?


Seamlessly integrate COMSOL Multiphysics with MATLAB to extend your modeling with scripting and to build your own applications that incorporate your models. The LiveLink for MATLB lets you utilize the full power of MATLAB and its toolboxes in preprocessing, model manipulation and post processing to:

  • Preprocess data, such as from images or experiments, to be included as geometries or material properties within your models
  • Manipulate your model from the command line to customize and parameterize the geometry, physics or solutions scheme to, for example, optimize topology
  • Extract data from models for post processing and extended  visualization
  • Deploy your models to people in your organization that are required to only manipulate specific parameters you provide
  • Interface COMSOL Multiphysics simulations to computations performed in other simulations

Note: To use any of the COMSOL Modules, a COMSOL Multiphysics Base License pass is required. All module software is included with the COMSOL Multiphysics download file, which means you need to download only once.
