Limitations of nonlinear calculations

Details of Limitations of nonlinear calculations

  • Module code ESA1305
  • Software
    • SCIA Engineer
  • FAQ topic

The nonlinear calculation has following limits:

  • Total number of nodes and finite elements: unlimited
  • Total number of nonlinear combinations: 1000
  • Maximal number of iterations (in one increment): 1000
  • Maximal number of increments: 500

If these limits are exceeded, the nonlinear calculation will not give correct results. In most cases, no equilibrium will be reached.
