Hello everyone,

I'm currently trying to run sonicFoam but I get the following error, does anyone have an idea about what could be the source of this problem?

Thanks!

It looks to me like div by zero in the turbulence model. Maybe try to change relaxation factors. So far I've never used a transient solver in OpenFOAM but Initial residual 0 for rho looks confusing to me.

am9109,

I've been trying to setup a propeller in OF using pimpleDyMFoam and I faced the same error message you did.

What I had to do to was to adjust the initial deltaT in my controlDict and allow the solver to adjust it to control the Courant number using
"adjustTimeStep yes".

Not sure if it will help, but it might be worthing to give it a shot.

Hope it helps.

Cheers!
