Default Solver error message!!!

Hi,

I am running a free surface simulation on a wigley hull, I run the Solver and after 30 iterations it stops with an error. The simulation progresses quite well other than the exit error.

Does anyone have any suggestion?

Below is a part from the output file:

Your problem is in the P-Vol and Mass-Water imbalances (>100%), this cause unphysical flow behaviors. Check all your boundary conditions! You are using an Homogeneous Model in the Multiphase Options, try to switch to the Inhomogeneous one. Read and follow the Best Practice Guidelines for Multiphase Flow in the Manual. F
