Chapter 20: Controls

Output

This panel lets you define solution controls for your model.

Wrapup Criteria

These controls are the only ones visible when you open this panel for the first time. This is because you must specify some of the parameters (all other control inputs have default values that are usually OK).

Press   alongside any of the remaining options to reveal the input fields for that option :

Timestep Options

These options control the timestep Autodyn uses to run your problem.

Damping Options

These options control the magnitude of damping applied to your problem.

The default values are best for most problems.

Be very careful if you increase these values, they can significantly change your solution.

Solver Options

Global Cutoffs

These options let you set global cutoffs.

The default values are usually good if you are using the default units (mm, mg, ms). You may want to change one or more of these defaults if you are using some other set of units.

SPH Cutoffs

These options let you set SPH cutoffs.

The default values are usually good if you are using the default units (mm, mg, ms). You may want to change one or more of these defaults if you are using some other set of units.

Gravity

This option lets you set gravitational components for your model.

Transport

These options relate to the transport of material in various Solvers.

Global Erosion

These options define global erosion criteria for all elements in the model. The global erosion options are only available for unstructured elements.
