Solving scenario / computation step: about
Scenario: definition
A solving scenario is a Flux entity, which defines a control of the solving process (see example below).
Examples
 In a Flux transient application the solving scenario sets up the time control, i.e. the values of time steps.
 Within a parametric analysis, the solving scenario sets up the control of parameters, i.e. the values of parameters for various cases (computation steps).
Types of scenarios
Various types of scenarios in function of the study type (with / without parameters) and of the application type (transient / nontransient) are possible; they are presented in the table below.
Analysis without parameters  

Application  System …  Scenario  
Non transient  Static / Harmonic / Quasi static 
linear / non linear 
Mono step (one step) 

Transient  Transient 
linear / non linear + transient 
Transient multi step (More steps «connected to each other») 
Analysis with parameters  

Application  System …  Scenario  
Non transient  Static / Harmonic / Quasi static 
linear / non linear 
Parametric multi step (Several independent steps) 

Transient  Transient 
linear / non linear + transient 
Transient and parametric multi step (Several steps «connected to each other» or independent) 
Complements
There can be more than one scenario in the same Flux project.
Scenario states
States of a solving scenario can be as follows:
 unprocessed (not processed yet)
 partly processed (some steps are processed and some not)
 fully processed (all the steps are processed)
Computation step states
States of a computation step are presented in the table below.
State  Example  Postprocessing  

unprocessed  solving process uncompleted or completed with user's stop at the end of the step / adding a step to the scenario  no  
processed  incorrectly solved 
problem of convergence user's stop at the end of an iteration 
yes 
unsolved 
error in modeling 
no  
correctly solved  yes
