AMI - Propeller Tutorial diverging
Hello people

I am trying to learn how to implement AMI with the help of pimpleDyMFoam tutorial of propeller. when I start the simulation using Allrun command the simulation blows up after ~35 iterations. the continuity suddenly becomes from 0.1 to 1e+3 and then the simulation diverges. I have not done any changes to the tutorial provided with the distribution (I am using OF 2.1.1).
I am quite confused why that is happening. Any suggestions what should be done ?

Also I want to implement AMI with MRFSimpleFoam. Do we need constant/dynamicMeshDict ... ? Also what else will be the major changes when compared to the tutorial of propeller. Because tutorial is a transient simulation with pimpleDyMFoam where as I want to do steady state simulation.

Any help/suggestions will be greatly helpful and will be appreciated. :o

Thanks in Advance.
