iterative results ignoring Max Output Level

Post by NJank »

running an Heat equation model with the following simulation & solver blocks:

Code: Select all

Simulation
  Max Output Level = 3
  Coordinate System = "Cartesian 2D"
  Coordinate Mapping(3) = 1 2 3
  Simulation Type = "transient"
  Timestep Sizes(1) = 1e-3
  Timestep Intervals(1) = 60
  Timestepping Method = BDF
  BDF Order = 1
  Steady State Max Iterations = 10
  Solver Input File = TBHSModel1_melting.sif
 End

Solver 1
  Exec Solver = "Always"
  Equation = "Heat Equation"
  Procedure = "HeatSolve" "HeatSolver"
  Variable = "Temperature"
  Variable Dofs = 1
  Optimize Bandwidth = True

  Linear System Solver = "iterative"
  Linear System Iterative Method = "BiCGStabl"
  Linear System Max Iterations = 1000
  Linear System Convergence Tolerance = 1.0e-08
  Linear System Abort Not Converged = True
  Linear System Preconditioning = "ILU1"
  Linear System Residual Output = 10

  Steady State Convergence Tolerance = 1.0e-6
  Stabilize = False
  Bubbles = False
  Lumped Mass Matrix = False
  Nonlinear System Convergence Tolerance = 1.0e-5
  Nonlinear System Max Iterations = 5
  Nonlinear System Newton After Iterations = 3	
  Nonlinear System Newton After Tolerance = 1.0e-3
  Nonlinear System Relaxation Factor = 1.0
End
the program produces output like the following:

Code: Select all

HeatSolve:
HeatSolve: Starting Assembly...
HeatSolve: Assembly done
      10 0.4729E-07 0.4729E-07
      16 0.9798E-08 0.9798E-08
ComputeChange: NS (ITER=5) (NRM,RELC): (  59.312385     0.22720930E-04 ) :: heat equation
the lines beginning with 10 and 16 ignore the "Max Output Level" setting. If I set it to zero, they still appear continually on the screen. If I switch to a direct solver, they don't appear at all.
