Solidworks convergence plot
Convergence Plot, what is it? Hi all, I'm an Industrial Design student currently working on some static analyses. One thing I have to do all the time, is waiting on the results. Meanwhile, I'm checking out facebook, having a break ánd I can't help to take a look at the 'Convergence Plot' also while using the FFEplus solver. Only the simulation with NLAD converges. The answer is the nonlinear adaptivity (NLAD) feature in Ansys Mechanical. The tool automatically repairs the mesh distortions that trigger convergence issues under large deformations. From there, the tool refines the mesh as it distorts to ensure local phenomena are captured correctly.
Mesh convergence is an important consideration in both Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit. The connecting lug will be used as an example of a mesh refinement study by further analyzing the connecting lug in Abaqus/Standard using four different mesh densities ( Figure 1 ). The number of elements used in each mesh is indicated in the figure.The convergence plot helps you visualize how the solution is converging. The solver parameters let you manipulate the solver iterations so that you can either improve accuracy or improve speed.
