convergence question
 
hi

i have a very basic question ..

when we give a convergence criteria to the solver.. say the residuals to be attained. The final result comes so that, at the end of the maximum outer loop iterations the residuals could not reach the desired values, but they remain constant over sevral itterations!!!

would you say the results have converged and are acceptable???

i think i should put the question so better:

what if the residuals oscillate about a value higher than that accpected??
