The *Iterative Model Solution (IMS)* dialog is accessed by double-clicking on the IMS package under a MODFLOW 6 simulation in the Project Explorer. It contains the following sections and options:

*Sections*list – A list of sections that can be turned on or off:*Comments*– Turn on to make the*Comments*section visible.*Options*– Turn on to make the*Options*section visible.*Nonlinear*– Turn on to make the*Nonlinear*section visible. This section is on by default.*Linear*– Turn on to make the*Linear*section visible. This section is on by default.

*Comments*section – Enter general alphanumeric comments. Comments entered here get written at the top of the file, preceded by a '#' symbol.*Options*section*PRINT_OPTION*– A flag that controls printing of convergence information from the solver. Turn on to make the following print options available from the drop-down:- "None" – Print nothing. This is the default when
*PRINT_OPTION*is not turned on. - "Summary" – Print only the total number of iterations and nonlinear residual reduction summaries
- "All" – Print linear matrix solver convergence information to the solution listing file and model specific linear matrix solver convergence information to each model listing file in addition to "Summary" information.

- "None" – Print nothing. This is the default when
*COMPLEXITY*– Optional. Defines default non-linear and linear solver parameters. Turn on to make the following options available from the drop-down:- "Simple" – Default solver input values will be defined that work well for nearly linear models.
- "Moderate" – Default solver input values will be defined that work well for moderately nonlinear models.
- "Complex" – Default solver input values will be defined that work well for highly nonlinear models.
**Set NONLINEAR and LINEAR Parameters to Complexity Defaults**– This will set all nonlinear and linear parameters to their default values corresponding to the current complexity setting. A confirmation dialog will appear.

*CSV_OUTER_OUTPUT FILEOUT*– Turn on to specify that the record corresponds to the comma separated values solver convergence output. Enter the desired filename for the output ASCII CSV file in the empty field to the right of the option.*CSV_INNER_OUTPUT FILEOUT*– Turn on to specify that the record corresponds to the comma separated values solver convergence output. Enter the desired filename for the output ASCII CSV file in the empty field to the right of the option.*NO_PTC*– Turn on to disable pseudo-transient continuation (PTC). Only applies to steady-state stress periods for models using the Newton-Raphson formulation.- "ALL"
- "FIRST"

The options include the following:*OUTER_DVCLOSE*– Real value defining the head change criterion for convergence of the outer (nonlinear) iterations, in units of length. Default value is "0.001".*OUTER_MAXIMUM*– Integer value defining the maximum number of outer (nonlinear) iterations. Default value is "25".*UNDER_RELAXATION*– Optional drop-down value.

Default value is "0".*BACKTRACKING_TOLERANCE*– Only available if*BACKTRACKING_NUMBER" has a value of "1" or higher. Real value defining the tolerance for residual change that is allowed for residual reduction computations**BACKTRACKING_REDUCTION_FACTOR*– Only available if*BACKTRACKING_NUMBER" has a value of "1" or higher. Real value defining the reduction in step size used for residual reduction computations**BACKTRACKING_RESIDUAL_LIMIT*– Only available if*BACKTRACKING_NUMBER" has a value of "1" or higher. Real value defining the limit to which the residual is reduced with backtracking.**LINEAR_SOLVER*– Enter the linear solver being used.
