sonicFoam Floating point exception error
 
Hi,

I am simulating a flow through an scramjet engine at mach 8, using sonicFoam. But after some time following error is occurring. Please help!!!!

Hi,

if your Mach number is around 8, I'm not sure if a pressure based compressible solver can solve your problem. Why not use rhoCentralFoam (density based compressible solver).

Hi Christian,

I tried using rhoCentralFoam but it is also giving the same error. Can it be coming due to DeltaT?? Right now it is 1e-07, do I need to reduce it more?

Thanks

regards,

Ishan
