nThe force criterion is the same in both cases. In the 2-step solution, on the first iteration, the force is far from the criterion, so it does 10 more until it gets below.nIn the 10-step solution, on the first substep, the force is close to the criterion on the first iteration, and it get below on the second iteration. That is because the load is only 1/5 of the 2-step solution.nThe accuracy is similar for each solution setup.n
