Hey People,

I am a student trying to work on my Disso using CFX. I have a problem. Every time I have tried to run the solution in CFX Solver Manager, a windows message shows up saying

"solver-hpmpi.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close."

So I send the report, and CFX Solver Manager says,

" An error has occurred in cfx5solve:
The ANSYS CFX solver could not be started, or exited with return
code 255: . No results file has been created. "

This has happened everytime I have tried to run this simulation and its always on outer loop iteration = 2.

Please could you help me since time is getting really short and I need results.

The simulation I am trying to run is a rotor stator arrangement which is very similar to the one in the ansys tutorials.

HELP!!!

Hi,
Have you been able to run the tutorial problem?
I have got this error in the past for a variety of reasosn, could be mesh, setup etc. Try to debug one at a time. I would start with a remesh.

If it occurs on outer loop iteration 2 then it is a convergence problem. You need to improve the stability of your simulation - are your physics correct? Is the mesh of high enough quality? Is your time step small enough?

Thank you.

I tried to change a few of the details for this run, but now, I won't even start up.

As soon as I try to start the run, the same message is displayed and this time, it does no iterations....

Help, this is getting worse

did you get help from the tutorial you've mentioned. as the friends say more than one exact reason can have role here. so because of time the tutorial is a good start. chang the time scale gradually and little by little. test all the ways one by one to find the best model, don't take all of them in one step
good luck

are you running a solver with parallel mode?

Then you have made it even less numerically stable. You are heading in the wrong direction. Whatever you changed, try going the other way.

I repeat my previous post:

People, I don't believe you can imagine how grateful I am for you help.

I have my first set of results, and I'm on my way to getting more.

It was the time steps.

made them 10-4 and it worked

Thank you again
