Setting computation parameters and starting time-dependent simulation

Before you can start computing, you have to check respectively set two parameters in Computation menu.

  1. For full implicit computation you have to set the growth rate of the crystal to 0.

    Select Computation > Process parameters.

  2. In any time-dependent computation the growth rate must be set to 0! Otherwise the results will be wrong.

    Change the growth rate to 0.

  3. Click on Apply and Close to apply the changes and close the Process parameters dialog.

  4. Select Computation > Numerical parameters > Inverse.

  5. For time-dependent computation any relaxation factor should be set close to 1.

    Replace the Controller relaxation factor default by 0.9. Also replace the Forward relaxation factor by 0.8.

  6. Click on Apply and Close to apply the changes and close the Numerical parameters dialog.

  7. Click on the Start computation button  .

    CrysMAS indicates the computation progress in the status bar.
