ERROR #001100279 has occurred in subroutine ErrAction.

Hello

I am trying to simulate flow for a Pelton runner. I have two fluid domains: one is stationary and the other is rotating. There are no errors till the CFX Pre stage.

I am using Ansys 13 cfx on Intel Core i5-2400 3.10 ghz quadcore processor with 16gb of ram.

I am getting the following error when using the CFX solver manager:

Is this problem related to the hardware or with my domains/meshing? There are around 9 million nodes for both the domains.

I have attached the cfx-pre setup information file.

I would be very grateful for any suggestions/help?

Thank you

Going to 2 partitions has reduced the real stack size from 5.5GB to 2.8GB. The answer should be obvious - you need at least 3 partitions for this to run, then the partitions will be under the 2.1GB limit.

thank u mate
 
Thank you mate. That did the trick but i had to reduce to the number of nodes too.

So the main idea is increasing the number of partitions if there is stack overflow?

CHEERS!!!

The point is you were running out of memory, so either you need more memory per processor or you need to reduce memory useage per processor. One way to do this is to use more partitions since this distributes storage over the partitions making the useage per processor less so you don't run out of memory.

Are there any rules on how many partitions I can use?

You can use as many partitions as you have licenses for. But note that simulation speed will reduce if you have too many partitions, and licenses cost money so the value for money equation is more restrictive again.
