    Why is the solver running twice?

    Peter MacDonald

      Hi,

       

      I'm running a standard static study using the automatic solver (No h or p-adaptive involved), so why are most of the tasks running twice?

      Solving contact constraints is one of the tasks running twice. This task takes a long time to complete so I'm concerned that my simulations are taking twice as long as necessary.

       

      This only happens with a certain series of models, each copied from the previous model.

      Perhaps some form of modelling issue has occured somewhere down the line.

      Or is there a reasonable explanation for this?

       

      Thanks.
