What's the meaning of this error
 
Hi ,

I am trying to model the geometry with two periodic pair boundary conditions (one periodic pair for each inlet-outlet pair; there are two inlets and two outlets in the geometry). I used the import mesh mode and imported two solids (which acts as two-domains). Since i defined the periodic pair at inlet and outlet, i can't define any other B.C at inlet and outlet. So i defined resistance coefficient to model the pressure drop. In solver i am getting following error. Can any body tell me why i might be getting this error and what's the solution for that? Sorry for going on.

Thanks Swapnil.

Re: What's the meaning of this error
 
Unfortunately I always meet such problem if my case has a great number of meshes. If I use a small size model with less meshes or nodes, it works. I do not know why. Now I am trying to check FLUENT whether it can work or not. I am looking forward to someone else can answer us such problem.

Cheers David

Re: What's the meaning of this error
 
Swapnil,

You need to increase the integer space that the solver is allocating. Note the part that says: "Action required : Increase the integer stack memory size". This means you.

You can do this in the solver manager. Click the "Advanced Controls" check box on the bottom of the panel, and two more tabs should come up. In the solver tab there is a section for controlling the memory allocation. Enter a multiplier for the integer workspace as it describes on the panel. Try 1.2x for example.
