hi foamers,

This warning is encountered during implementation. And the solution is diverging.
//--------------
Courant Number mean: 4.89667e-05 max: 0.488398
deltaT = 1.06092e-56
--> FOAM Warning :
From function Time:perator++()
in file db/Time/Time.C at line 1010
Increased the timePrecision from 519 to 520 to distinguish between timeNames at time 0.209868
Time = 0.209868454511289076469537917546404059976339340209 9609375
//--------------------------------
How can I solved this warning.
best regards

hi dear vahid
deltaT = 1.06092e-56
is so little, so you should decrease your time step in controlDict to remove this warning.
how much time do you want to simulate? (1 sec, 1 min, ....)
however this little time step shows, some where your solver works wrong! i recommend to check up your BC or your implantation because with this small time step , for and ordinary time it would take so so long time

Indeed, this could be an indication that something is wrong with the BC like nimasam says. But it might also be that you started with a too big Courant number (~too big time step), this can create instabilities with extremely small time steps as a result. And last, it could also be caused by badly chosen initial conditions. Taking a small time step at the beginning of the run could correct for this.

Cheers,

hi
I'm modeling combustion with reactingFoam solver . i used to start the combustion from energy source in the energy equation at Specific time. After applying the energy source comes up warning.
//--------------
energySource1
{
type scalarExplicitSource;
active true;
timeStart 0.2;
duration 0.05;
selectionMode points;
points
(
(0.067 0.00035 -0.01)
);

scalarExplicitSourceCoeffs
{
volumeMode absolute;
injectionRate
{
hs 2;
}
}
}
//-----------------------------------
best reagard

i suggest to add source in several points instead of one point!, it may solves problem
