I'm running SW Premium 2015 SP 4.0, so I don't have access to a lot of the fancy simulation-analysis tools. After an H-Adaptive simulation has completed, if *and only if* it satisfies the specified accuracy criterion, I do get a pop-up telling me the final value of that variable. (I if the criterion was not met, apparently I get nothing but the new plots.) But (assuming I wasn't watching it the whole time):

1) How do I find out how many loops were run?

2) How do I get details on the mesh, such as what was the smallest element size? (I see that I can view an image of the mesh in Mesh/Show Mesh.)

3) How do I save the mesh if I want to use it in another simulation? (I see that I can re-use it as the starting point of the same simulation if I increase the accuracy criterion.)

4) If the specified accuracy criterion was not met, how do I find the final value of that variable?

The only other pieces of information I've found are the number of nodes (or DOF) and the run time of the *final* loop in Results/Solver Messages. I'm hoping there's more somewhere! -- John Willett

By setting the maximum number of loops to 2, by copying the resulting solved study to a new one with those same settings, and by repeating this process

ad nauseam, I now see that I can get access to all of the loop steps in such an h-adaptive solution. (What I can't seem to get in this case is the value of the convergence parameter after each loop is done.) I guess this is a step forward, but it's surely a tedious process! Is this really the best I can do?I apologize for editing the name of this thread, but I wanted to make it more representative of my quandary. -- John Willett
