Question:I am currently running a number of cases at a particular draft and altering the area ratio limit. When I do that, the output gives me a margin percentage. I was just wondering if this means the margin by which the MAXVCG does not exceed the area ratio limit.Answer:The margin % is the amount that the specified limit value has been exceeded at that particular MAX VCG expressed as a percentage of the limit value. For example, if your area ratio limit value is 1.4 and the MAX VCG yields an area ratio of 1.5, the margin is 7%. The MAXVCG process continues until the margin for all of the specified Limits is zero or greater. Therefore, if you only have one limit specified the margin % should always be zero.
