hi everybody!!!

Convergence in my simulation case is obtained when Cm (moment coefficient) is uniformed. I wanted to do somehow a program to check the difference of Cm value in the last X iterations and see if it changed a lot or not in order to see convergence...

Shall I do it via UDF or scheme programming or is there any other way?? Do you know of any place where to have a look to know it better??
