error using combination of step function

i want to set two bubble in initial condition, someone gave me a suggestion, the combination of step function is used, however,the cfx is terminal because of error,just like this:

Re: error using combination of step function

Hi,

The error message is saying your function is returning values which are out of bounds, that is smaller than 0 or greater than 1. Check the function to calculate the volume fraction.
