    Solidworks FLow Simulation - iterations??

    Shahrul 88

      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?

       

      Thanks
