September 11, 2020 at 2:02 pmjonsolnSubscriberIs there any way of setting criterion for when Ansys Mechanical Solver should give up on finding a solution? I am working with some simple calculations involving contacts that should take little time to complete if my models are good. The jobs are solved on a remote server, so a non-converging simulation running for hours is taking up unnecessary time from the other jobs in the queue. I can manually check the displacement increment and residuals and stop the solution if I see that it's not converging, but I'd much prefer an automatic method. Can I set a limit on max displacement, displacement increment, bisections or other things to abort the solution? n
