Hi, when I run interFoam I meet this error, both in parallel and serial, I can't understand what causes this. Could you help me?

The provided information does not seem sufficient. When does this happen? If it is at the beginning of the simulation, and the tutorial runs fine, probably you should check the setup of your case.

Greetings Chenguang Li and welcome to the forum!

I had that problem, namely with "GAMGSolver::scalingFactor" or something similar to that the other day, and I vaguely remember that the problem was related to an excessively high maxCo value in "system/controlDict". Either that or I wasn't using the automatic deltaT adjustment.

If you had posted the lines of the latest 1 or 2 iterations, it would be easier to figure out if this was the issue or not.

The other possibility is that the mesh is damaged. Run checkMesh to confirm this.

Yet another possibility is that the parameters for using GAMG aren't sufficient for the complexity of your mesh... but unfortunately I don't know enough about it to be of any help with that

Best regards,

edit: Hi Alberto, didn't see you had already posted, because I had an old version of this page

Thank you very much. I'll try to find which one is the right reason as you suggested.
I'm so excited that my question was answered by you so quickly. I love this forum!
