Comsol: time resolution

  1. Jun 18, 2009 #1
    Hi everybody,
    I've got a problem with the Global Variables Plot in a 3D thermo-structural problem. I want to plot the reaction force for all the stored output times, but the interpolation only takes 7 steps of the solution, although the "times" in my time stepping are 0:.01:10 .
    In my opinion the problem is anything with the solver manager, but I'm not sure. Could somebody please give me a hint? Thx!!!

    Problem solved...
    In the "solve parameters", the chart "Time Stepping" ,then "Time steps taken by solver", I had the setting "free" which was not such a good idea. Works much better with "strict".
