Hello

I am running a copy of FloTHERM on a cluster VM which has worked fine in the past, however, now when solving the iteration count oscillates rather than going forward. Has anyone seen anything like this before? Thanks for the help.

I attached an image of the residuals.

Looks like you've got 2 solves going on for the same project at the same time. Not common or easy to achieve. Would advise you stop, reinitialise and kick off just one solve again.

That made sense. The solver would not seem to stop, but restarting the VM machine and reinitializing seemed to do the trick. By the way if this is Robin Bornoff from Mentor/Electronics Cooling magazing I love your articles.

Thank you
