I have a problem with running firefoam in parallel. Working with serial there is no problem. With parallel, I encountered a problem after writing two or three data set the program stopped and exit and give the following statments:

The following is my controlDict:
application fireFoam;

startFrom startTime;

startTime 0;

stopAt endTime;

endTime 20.0;

deltaT 1e-5;

//writeControl adjustableRunTime;
writeControl runTime;
writeInterval 0.1;

purgeWrite 0;

writeFormat ascii;

writePrecision 6;

writeCompression uncompressed;

timeFormat general;

timePrecision 6;

graphFormat raw;

runTimeModifiable yes;
adjustTimeStep yes;

maxCo 0.5;

maxDeltaT 0.01;


and decomposeParDict:

numberOfSubdomains 8;

method simple;
//method metis;
//method scotch;

simpleCoeffs
{
n (2 2 2);
delta 0.001;
}

hierarchicalCoeffs

}


scotchCoeffs

Hi,
Your Courant number is of 0.5, I noticed that above 0.45, with most of the schemes I used, fireFoam diverges due to numerical instability. Could you try to reduce your time step by setting the maxCo entry to 0.3 in controlDict ?
