If a calculation does not run as smoothly as you expected, or it appears that the phase calculation does not convergence, it was sometimes a bit difficult to understand why this is the case. Since the release of PLAXIS 2D/3D CONNECT Edition V21, inspecting these details is now a lot easier using the **Calculation Log Collector**! You can inspect any phase by just selecting the option from the Phases Explorer or Phases Window:

*Figure 1: select Converge Log from the Phases Explorer and Phases Window*

And if you want to access it while the phase is still calculating, you can now launch it directly from the Calculation Progress Screen:

*Figure 2: select Converge Log during the Calculation for live updating of the log*

The **Calculation Log Collector** will give you all the details on the convergence process, as shown here below:
