About Termination Conditions
A termination condition is an expression or a mathematical equation consisting of variables, constants, operators, and common functions that limit or define movement.
If a termination condition has been defined for an analysis, the condition will stop the analysis after a specific amount of time has elapsed, after a specific event has occurred, or whenever the condition is fulfilled. The step length automatically adjusts so that the analysis terminates at the same time as the condition is fulfilled.
