As ``Frequency of writing restart-file every analysis-step'' you specify after
how many analysis steps a restart file
is written to the directory containing the other lis-files.
The name of the restart file is given in the control file (default name
A restart file contains all the information necessary to continue
calculation at the current integration step in the event of a subsequent
interruption. At startup, EGO automatically looks for the restart file
specified in the control file
and continues the calculation from that point rather
than starting over.
Typical values of writing restart files range between 10 to 1000.
Note: At the end of a simulation run a restart file is created automatically!
