Dear All,

My mutWallFunction was working properly to simulate the flow around a cylinder with heat transfer but the mutRoughWallFunction was giving Float Point Exception..... So I found the fix and am sharing with you here because I have seen some posts about this subject.

in "/opt/openfoam171/applications/bin/linux64GccDPOpt/rhoSimpleFoam"
Floating point exception
in RASProperties
RASModel       kOmegaSST;
turbulence    on;
in boundary condition mut file
        type            mutRoughWallFunction;
        value           uniform 0.0;
	Ks 		uniform 0.24;
	Cs 		uniform 0.5;
I found the fix for the issue. It is more related to run-time execution than models, parameters or inputs. You need to code in terminal where you are running OpenFOAM:


export FOAM_SIGFPE=false

Error Floating point exception
