How could i solve these type of errors?? And what is floating point error.How can it be avoid.??

If you are using Implicit scheme, reduce you Courant no to 1 and then iterate, if same problem again accurs reduce it more until your solution stablizes 2. If you are using Explicit scheme, reduce Courant no <<1 in order to stablize your solution and also reduce your Under Relaxation Factors 3. Floating point error occurs when something gets divided by zero in iterations, so check your BC's and specify the correct velocities, pressures etc Good luck
