convergence plot


This is the plot of a static structural nonlinear simulation.

All the convergence criteria are PC. Only Force and Displacement criteria are available for this simulation, I can see it from the Solver Output. I know that convergence occurs when all the criteria overcome the convergence criterion for a certain number of iterations (don't know exactly how since it varies). Thus, I don't understand why the simulation doesn't convergence in a substep although both the criteria (in this case only Force and Displacement) are below the magenta line for more than three iterations. Sometimes the force and displacement keep being under the magenta line for 50 iterations or more then bisection occurs or divergence happens.
