MATLAB Performance Benchmarking for CLI and GUI Performance

Comparison of MATLAB Versions for CLI and GUI Performance

Although the MATLAB core has essentially stayed the same throughout the years, the MATLAB language and runtime has with every release been extended with more functionality as well as featured significant improvements to the interpreter and Just-In-Time (JIT) compilation engine. As developer of the FEATool Multiphysics …

Fortran, Julia, and MATLAB Finite Element FEM Benchmark Comparison

Fortran, Julia, and MATLAB FEM Benchmark Comparison

Continuing the previous Finite Element Method (FEM) solver and assembly benchmark comparison, this follow up compares the entire solution process for an identical simulation problem, in this case a two-dimensional (2D) Poisson problem solved on a unit square. The model problem is stationary, and discretized with …

Fortan, Julia, and MATLAB FEM Assembly and Solver Benchmarks

Assembly and Solver Benchmarks for Finite Element Method (FEM) Codes

Although not very popular to undertake, and sometimes outright controversial, benchmarks and benchmarking is often very useful in order to be able to make fair and informed decisions about software codes, libraries, and choice of programming languages. With this in mind, several Finite Element Analysis (FEA) simulation …
