Calculation Kernel Convergence log

If a calculation does not run as smoothly as you expected, or it appears that the phase calculation does not convergence, it was sometimes a bit difficult to understand why this is the case. Since the release of PLAXIS 2D/3D CONNECT Edition V21, inspecting these details is now a lot easier using the Calculation Log Collector! You can inspect any phase by just selecting the option from the Phases Explorer or Phases Window:

select Converge Log from the Phases Explorer and Phases Window

And if you want to access it while the phase is still calculating, you can now launch it directly from the Calculation Progress Screen:

select Converge Log during the Calculation for live updating of the log

Figure 2: select Converge Log during the Calculation for live updating of the log

The Calculation Log Collector will give you all the details on the convergence process, as shown here below:
