I'm having issues making the simulation to converge. Force is applied on the seal. The force goes through the support, spring, seat to ball.
While the force is applied, Pressure on the following area is also applied.
I'm studying the contact pressure between the seat and ball at 3 different forces and pressures.
The simulation converged after I added stabilization controls, but it make the simulation slower.
This is the results after force and pressure are applied. The spring is deformed and pushed completely against the seat.
1. I read that the stabilization add dampers. How can I check how those this influence on the result accuracy?
2. How can I reduce the simulation time, without affecting the result accuracy?
I will appreciate any advice.
