Everyone has already had this warning....... I'm a novice as StarCD user, but I propose to you : - try to decrease your time step (have a look about 'Courant Number' in the user guide). - try to launch your run in double precision. - verify your molecular properties (Density : ideal f(T,P) / Viscosity : Multicomp. / Specific Heat : Polynomial / Conductivity : Multicomp. ).

Maybe decrease some relaxation factors could be helpful, but I'm not sure...

Good luck.

Thank you for your reply but i am solving a steady state flow and i am also using low pressure relaxation factor(0.03).Can any other reasons possible?

You can try transient solving. Good wishes!
