Why do you want to do a transient analysis in a fixed duct when none of the BC's depend on time? Are you interested in the flow development?

What is the size of your duct? I am wondering if your timestep is too big and it is diverging because of that.

Okay so if I remember your CCL file, the time step was about the same as the characteristic time of the flow (object size divided by the flow speed). This might be a bit large. The solution could be unstable as a result. Try a time step 1/10th as large and see if there is a difference.

I think you misunderstood. Your duct is about 1 m long and your inlet velocity is about 30 m/s. Thus it takes about 0.03 seconds for a fluid parcel to go though the duct. I am saying you should make you time step 1/10th of that, so 0.003 seconds. If it is still unstable you can go even smaller.

Maybe you could also post the output file to show the error.
