Hi all,

Just a information sharing.
i currently upgraded to Fluent 12.0 and i try to rerun my simulation which i successfully done in Fluent 6.2.
The unsteady simulation just stop after around 8 time steps with the error message , AMG divergence - X-momentum.
I actually using the exactly same CASE file for both Fluent 12.0 and Fluent 6.2, but the Fluent 12.0 had fail to run.

I suspect Ansys had added something into Fluent 12.0 cause it not stable.

I also have some colleague using ICEPAK 12.0 and they also found error which never happen on ICEPAK 4.0. Again, its a totally same simulation.

I will suggest to stop using Fluent 12.0 for the moment.

Anyhow, just a suggestion.

I had tired another 5 cases which i successfully run in Fluent 6.3. All case fail running in Fluent 12.0.
I grab the latest patch from Fluent 12.0.12 , try again, still fail.

I hope the latest Fluent 12.1 can solve the problem.

Hello herntan,

I never encountered such an error in v12. May be this problem based another things. License,operating sytem, system configurations etc... Because i runned alot of models in v12 from v11 case files.
Yesterday 12.1 version released. you can try this. May be useful

Good Luck

Arda,

I using the same lisence as the Fluent 6.3 using.
I have no idea why this happen in Fluent 12.0.
I had tried to download 12.1 from Fluent user website, but they haven't release the software yet.
U get the 12.1 already?

GREAT NEWS !!

I had downloaded the latest Fluent 12.1 from fluentuser.com and rerun my simulation again.
Now everything works all right.
The simulation i used to run fail in Fluent 12.0 now able to run in Fluent 12.1.

You guys can start try using Fluent 12.1. I think Ansys had fixed the bug in Fluent 12.0.
