QUESTION: When the number of P-Delta iterations is set in the analysis options, will RCpier always run through the maximum number of cycles, or will it stop if it converges based on some criteria? If the user sets it to 30, will it always use all 30 iterations?


Yes, the program always runs through the number of iteration the user sets it for.
