WARNING #009 ***THE VALUE OF SCALAR SC1 IN CELL 11362 ( -4.2141E-21) IS BELOW THE MINIMUM

I get this error when I try to mix two fluids in a t shaped mixer. Does someone know how I can get rid of this problem? or what is causing it? I am mixing water and ethanol

cheers

If this happens early in a steady state solution but disappears after a while, it is no problem. The number is very small indeed, and Star is just correcting a small round-off error, most likely.

If it continues, you have something more serious wrong, like a disconnected piece of mesh.
