Solidworks FLow Simulation - iterations??

Question asked by Shahrul 88 on May 15, 2012

Hi All,


I'm using solidworks to do convection heat transfer in the microcomputer. The problem is my understanding on the number of iterations.


2 simulations are done through 2 different setting on the iteration:

       1) goals convergence (result obtained as in Pic 1 attached - stop at iteration 56)

       2) maximum iterations = 42 (result obtained as in Pic 2 attached - stop at iteration 42)


How do I explain about the differences of data ( in this case temperature) at iteration 20 and iteration 30??

For goals convergence; what is mean by goal convergence?? is it equilibrium state/ condition??


This number of iterations are not explained about time, am I right?
