thank you clearing things out here.
How can we increase the number of allowed iterations specifically for the contact penetration convergence tolerance, so that it is met?
And how can we be sure that the convergence is not happening because the contact penetration convergence tolerance is not met? Should the NR-Residuals in that contact region should be an indication that it is not met? Or are there any other indications as well to tell us in which regions is the contact penetration causing a convergence problem?
What if I completely remove the criteria for contact penetration convergence tolerance? Should that be an issue in terms of accuracy of the results? Is there a way to completely get rid of it?
