Ultimate Time Not Reached

Ultimate Time Not Reached


I am currently running a case in Plaxis 2D of slope stability of unsaturated soils with rainfall. The period of case is 31 days with rainfall on the 6-13th and 27-29th days. I have managed to get completed results for consolidation but when I run for safety, the calculation stops on the 13th with ultimate time not reached. I have increased the additional steps to the maximum but the calculation still stops. Does anyone have any suggestions how I can continue the calculation process. I have included nil phase at the very beginning since I am using gravity loading in the initial phase. Thank you very much.

RE: Ultimate Time Not Reached

Have you tried go to manual setting on iterative procedures and change the maximum iterations ?

RE: Ultimate Time Not Reached

Thank you very much AndreBC for your reply. I have increased the iterations and it managed to continue calculating.
