Convergence Criteria and Stepping in a NL Analysis

Hello,

 

I'm wondering if it's possible to define convergence criteria in solidworks in a non linear analysis, or if this is something the program automatically decides for itself based on material properties.

 

Additionally, is it possible to use load-stepping or some sort of deflection controled application of load instead of time-stepping?  For instance, can I have a uniform application of 1kn/step or 1mm-of-deformation/step?

 

Thanks,

Andrew
