Hi Rao, (1)How many cells do you have? (2)What are the machine specification? (3)What is the physics/chemistry of the model? (4) What is the mode of the license access?

Answers to these questions will give us a basis to compare notes or comment.

regards. Eldoret

I am running Windows 2000, and as adiministrator, I am simulating air flow over an aerodynamic object.

I guess this is a turbulent flow & single phase, is that right?? How about the numerics?

Rao,

The flow solver is trying to allocate:

1502742.6 + 634941.6 + 1856.2 = 2139540.4 KB.

I single process in Windows 2000 cannot allocate more than 2GB. Ask your service rep for a parallel key so you can split your job into a 2 process parallel run. That may work.
