Solver settings in Abaqus/S for delamination analysis with cohesive elements

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

I have different 3D models of laminates where I analyse the delamination propagation using zero thickness cohesive elements in Abaqus/Standard. My experience with the RIKS solver and Newton solvers are that they are extremely sensitive to even small changes in the step size settings as well as other solver settings.
