Convergence Percentage Calculation

Creo Simulate calculates the convergence percentage in the following ways:

• When you run a design study, the engine performs calculations at increasingly higher polynomial orders for each element edge. An analysis converges when the difference in the results of the last two calculations is within the percentage you specify here.

• The engine finishes calculating results when the analysis converges, or when it has reached the maximum polynomial order that you specified.

• Lower convergence percentages yield more accurate results, but Creo Simulate may take longer to reach convergence. You should balance the level of accuracy you need with the amount of time it will take to run a design study containing this analysis.
