Hi All,

running interFoam for a complex problem, I noticed that suddenly deltaT decreases and from e-07 it goes to e-14, then the computation stop with the following lines:

area3@calcolo:~/OpenFOAM/area3-1.4.1/run/tutorials/interFoam$ mpirun noticed that job rank 0 with PID 16148 on node calcolo exited on signal 15 (Terminated).

Did it stop because deltaT was tto little? If not, Why did it stop?

Is there something I can do to overcome this problem? Maybe refine the mesh could help?

Thanks for your suggestions

Yes, it stopped because deltaT was too small. More specifically adjustDeltaT() in Time.C (in $FOAM_SRC/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/). There is some logic there which divides by deltaT_ to find out when to write.

Refining the mesh will not likely help. More likely a boundary problem.

It's been my impression in the past, that the adjustable timestep can do horrible things with interFoam: a small droplet increases its velocity and "pulls" the timestep down.
Don't know the reason for that, but usually with a fixed (small enough) time-step these calculations worked without a problem.

Hi,

I have a similar issue with deltaT, but confused for cause of.
Was running a decomposed interFoam job through time steps and the machine crashed but log file looked great up till then.
Now, I am unable to restart case from last timestep.

Hi,

what was the name of the last time-directory you saved?

If you solve parallel, look at the processor0 directory if there is some other directories later that the time 0.008.

Yes, checked and nothhing later than 0.008. Also, am only writing every 0.001 sec. I am unsure if it is struggling with the deltaT in 0.008 file. The deltaT is very stable the last few time steps in my log files too. -L

Hi Michal,

Solved the issue but want to thank you for help. Looked at last deltaT in the log file
---log file info -----
Courant Number mean: 0.0105289 max: 0.499866
deltaT = 1.7331e-06
Time = 0.008

--------------------------

and reduced the ControlDict deltaT initial to that magnitude (will increase after restart too)

---controlDict change ------------
startTime 0.008;
stopAt endTime;
endTime 0.015;
deltaT 0.000001; //0.00000000000001;
writeControl adjustableRunTime;
writeInterval 0.001;

---------------------------------------------------

best, Lori
