,nIt is normal to see displacements getting converged much faster than stresses/strains. This is because stresses are calculated based on gradients of displacement fields. And since gradients are computed with one order less polynomial accuracy, it takes more elements to get stress convergence. However in your case its just the opposite. The point load you have applied is the source of singularity. Could you try using a local mesh refinement (rather than global) at the point load location rather than a global mesh refinement and see if you get a different trend?.Regards,nIshan.n
