Method to Debug a Model
The main aim of this chapter is to describe a methodology in order to perform a job diagnostic on a model which did not converge. Following the global mindset in chapter one along with the example of a global overview analysis flowchart methodology in Fig. 1.1, this chapter will focus on a step-by-step procedure to establish convergence with the model showing different analysis techniques as a function of the modeling phases needed to create the model with Abaqus features. The procedure described here is therefore a deeper understanding of the single cell titled “-Job diagnostics” in Fig. 1.1, showing users a logical approach toward corrective actions inside a puzzle of numerical difficulties.
