Default transient limit is 99,999 time steps? URGENT
Posts: n/a
Is there a limit imposed to the max number of time steps in transient analysis? My model should stop at 780,000 time steps but for some unknown reason I got this msg: CALCULATIONS TERMINATED - SPECIFIED NUMBER OF TIME STEPS/EXCHANGES COMPLETED FOR THIS RUN

It stopped at 99,999 time steps and it's only 1/4 of the way. How can I override this default limit for max time steps (if there is any)? Please help if u can.

yep, figured that out a few days ago. Thanks. For future reference of comnig transient novices like me:

1) yes it seems to abrupt stop at 99,999 steps (no way to override this restriction) 2) save the pstt into a different name e.g. name-1.pstt 3) restart run and again at 99,999 it shall stop 4) save the pstt into name-2.pstt 5) repeat steps 1 to 4
