Server jobs – convergence solution possible?

    • lordofthethings

      Hello everyone,

      I want to run a simple convergence for Equivalent stress based on mesh-refinement. I can do this in the Solutionby clicking

      Solution --> Equivalent Stress --> Insert --> Convergence

      Once I start the solution in the Local Machine, Ansys runs it automatically and performs the refinement until the convergence criteria is reached.

      However, if I run the job on the server, i.e :

      Solve --> "Server Name"

      ... it does not automatically keep solving. Once the first iteration is complete, I have to again run Solve, and so on and so forth. Is this a limitation in Ansys?

      In the object reference section of the help for convergence is this note:  "When performing an out of process solution asynchronously, wherein the solve may finalize during another Workbench session, the application performs only one maximum refinement loop. As necessary, you must manually perform additional loops. To solve with a single user action, solve synchronously."

      Great! Thank you so much for pointing me to this. Marking this as solution.
