MRST - MATLAB Reservoir Simulation Toolbox

Downloading MRST

The most recent edition of MRST was released on the December 16th 2019. Unless you have specific reasons not to, you should generally choose the most recent version of the package which can be found here. Note that while MRST releases are named using a scheme that is similar to the MATLAB software from The MathWorks, the naming does not reflect minimum requirements on the MATLAB version with which it is used. The release manager verifies that the MRST software does run on the same MATLAB version however (e.g., that MRST 2018a runs on MATLAB 2018a).
