Topic: Interpretation of Convergence Summary
I am doing the simulation of a reinforced concrete beam without stirrups. The model's processing is being executed in the ATENA Studio program. Three convergence graphs are shown: (1) Convergence Summary, (2) Step Convergence and (3) Interation Convergence.
In the graph Convergence Summary two lines are shown: Iteration Count and Non-converged step count. I understand the meaning of the Iteration Count line (number of iterations in each step). However, I do not understand the meaning of the Non-Converged Step Count line.
Could you give an explanation about that parameter?
Could the Non-Converged Step Count line be above the Iteration Count line?
