How to Overcome Convergence Problems for Metal Plasticity — Lesson 3

When an FEA model with metal plasticity fails to converge, it is important to first understand the stress state of the material at the point of non-convergence. In this video, we will use a multilinear plasticity model and show you how to diagnose convergence problems for metal plasticity.
