It helps if you add a small amount of the buckled shape into the initial geometry (or mesh) to give the solver an initial imperfection in the geometry.nThese models most easily converge if you apply displacements to the beam. You can plot the reaction force to know how much force is being put into the beam. The experimental specification of force/minute doesn't apply to a Static Structural analysis.n
