It is a case using simpleFoam solver with K-epsilon Turbulence model.
the fellowing result will blow up. Is there anyone can help me to find out where the problem comes from? BC setting('epsilo' attached)?

Maybe a draft of the geometry, details of problem and
dictionaries can give us a better idea how to solve the blowing up.

Try setting the k and e schemes to upwind rather than linear in the fvSchemes directory. I've had problems achieving convergence using second order schemes for the turbulence models.

In my case it was a great help to reduce the relaxation factors. I had the same problem. The relaxation factors are responsible for the search of a the start value in the calculation of the parameters depending of the result in the last time step. If you reduce them, the start value is not so far away to the last result but you´ll need more time for the calculation.
Try it. You find the relaxationFactors in fvSolution and then reduce all factors 0.1 down. If it doesn´t help, try 0.2.
It could be the geometry, too. But try it.
Hope, it helps.
