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.


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.
