The foundation mat is calculated on undermined territory. Account of the difference surface settlement is modeled by elements FE 262 with a gap. Number of stiffness FE 262 ~380, number of elements ~5500. Gaps are ranged from 0.0 to 2.5 cm, rounded to 0.01 cm. Time of one step calculation is 5 hours. There are automatically set 20000 iterations (for one step). Is it possible to reduce number of iterations for rough estimation? What generally affects the choice of this step? Another problem has only 2000 iterations. Is it possible to reduce them to 200?)))
