Fatal Bound Error
I am trying to do heat transfer analysis so i have introduced negative heat flux on the surface from 1000 to 100000 but when i give greater than 110000 heat flux value it converged but while writing the output it shows error as below
Locale : WALL Variable : Density Writing crash recovery file ERROR #001100279 has occurred in subroutine ErrAction. Message: Stopped in routine ENFORCE_BOUNDS An error has occurred in cfx5solve: The ANSYS CFX solver exited with return code 1. No results file has been created. End of solution stage. 
Looks like an error where the bounds of density were exceeded and it probably ended up with either a huge or negative density. Are you sure the simulation converged?

arunss,
Try checking the variable range information (on the OUT file), especifically the density part. It sounds like the density is way off the scale, and it generates this error.

I tried with variable range information while stating the density value is 3.9 at the point where it converged the value is 4.3 there is no much change in the density. i tried by doing backup for every 25 iteration but it save till 100 iteration at 125 iteration it shows the same error(actually it converged at 230 iteration) 
arunss,
On "expert parameters", "I/O Control", enable the "monitor ranges" option (set it to "t" as in TRUE) Check the iteration where the solver gives the error, and check the "Variable Range Information" table that will be available on your OUT file What's the min and max value of density?

Aruns,
The only strange thing is the pressure: 2.26E+06 Pa is 22 bar... does this correspond to what you are trying to simulate? Can you give a brief description of the problem? Best regards

I try to simulate gas generator system, which meas it store the gas with high temperature about 2000K and pressure about 23 bar in the chamber and it passes through converged diverged nozzle and exit via two pipes. the exit condition is pressure 22 bar, mass flow rate 6.5 gms/ sec and temperature 1273K, To reduce the temperature of the gas i introduced heat flux on wall (without heat flux the temperature is 2000K), i uploaded the geometry of the model the link has been given below http://www.loadmypicture.com/getimag...2344397362.jpg Total Size is about 0.5m length Chamber dia 115mm and length is 150mm and it converged to dia 5 mm and length of converged section is 75mm and diverged section end diameter is 12.7mm and length 75 mm and two pipes are connected 
Arun,
In which walls are you trying to set the heat flux? If this wall is too small, there will be a lot of heat exchange going on a very small area, and this could cause numerical errors.

So i increase the pipe length from 300mm to 700mm still i am getting the same error
