    nonlinear simulation plot step

    Magnum So

      Hi All,

       

      I am conducting a nonlinear simulation but found that sometimes the stress result showed is much lower when I modify the model slightly, then I found that the plot step is changed automatically, like the following pictures:

       

      sometimes the time is 1sec, sometimes the time is less than 1 sec and warn "step number shown is of nearest the time available". Does anyone know the reason and difference?

      My nonlinear simulation setting:

      material: 1023 carbon steel sheet(ss)

      model type: plasticity - von Mises

      Stepping options:
