Results after interrupting solution - are they accurate?


If I stop a transient structural simulation using the 'Interrupt Solution' (as in the figure below), are the results correct (up to the time step where I interrupted the simulation)?

I tested it and it appears that I get the same results as I would if I let the simulation run completely, but I get a message about the solution not being converged when I look at the results. Are there situations where the results would not match?

Thank you!

    The result could indeed be correct, but there is no way to be sure.

    It seems you may be running the transient much longer than it needs to be anyway. I would recommend adjusting your analysis settings.
