    How do I control the plot step and load factor in a non-linear static simulation?

    Nick Schott

      I am currently running a non-linear static simulation of a pressurized aluminum can. I am interested in seeing deformations as pressure is increased.

      Here are my solution parameters:

      Start time: 0

      End time 1:

      Time increment (automatic) :0.01

      My external pressure load (variation with time) is set to linear


      I am confused with my displacement plot results. Why does my load factor go to 244 and my plot step go to 40? This very high load factor is causing my model to deform drastically.
