multiphase simulation crash
Hi all, I'm simulating a multiphase flow in a section-changing tube. I've made several simulations but all of them crashed at the same simulating time (approx. 2.45s). I tried already to switch to second order solver and remesh the domain. the error message I encounter at the simulation crash is "floating point error". thx in advance austin

Re: multiphase simulation crash
try to give realistic second phase volume fraction. Use some standard correlations available in literature to give volume fraction BC.

Re: multiphase simulation crash
thank you for your answer, but can you be more specific?
