During the calculation, I get a warning that the calculation of a load case does not converge. What should I do?


When you see this message, check the nonlinearities available in the model as well as the plausibility of the results. The sum of loads and the sum of support forces could also help with the check. If you find significant deviations there, the results should not be used for further analysis It is often helpful to increase the number of load increments and the number of iterations in Calculation Parameters (see Figure 02).
