I ran a transient simulation which crashed after several iterations. I have BAK file. Can anyone tell me the way to restart the simulation using the BAK file.

Copy the .bak file to the main directory and pick the .bak file in lieu of the .def or .res file to start the run.

Yes. It's identical to a results file.
