reactingFoam: ODE Solver KRR4 "Too many integration steps"
 
Hello all,

I've been trying to do some simulations with reactingFoam. I've also used different ODE Solver (SIBS, RK, KRR4) to see if it's possible to get a stable simulation.

Both Solver (RK, KRR4) stops with following error message:

Code:

Courant Number mean: 0.0104708 max: 0.394021
deltaT = 3.1361e-05
Time = 0.00293728

Too many integration steps

    in file ODESolvers/ODESolver/ODESolver.C at line 107.

The maximum integration steps is hard coded as a constant variable in the source file. Could it make sense to keep it free for the user?

The SIBS Solver stops with following error message:
Code:

With my setup I wasn't able to get my Simulation go forward. Maybe someone has some marks or suggestions how I can get a stable ODE Solver for my reactinFoam simulation.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

These error are coming because your solution begins to diverge. I don't think its a good idea to change the maximum number of integration steps without properly understanding its theoretical background.

Rather its better if you make changes in your test case and try to run it completely with SIBS and then see if you still get any error with KRR4.

You may check your BC as they are a major reason for causing the JANAF error you are getting with SIBS.

Hi Nakul, I also meet the "too many integration step" problem, can you specify the possibility of the BC or is there any previous post discussing this?
Thanks

Hi,pajofego
I confront this problem too, did you find the reason eventually?
Thanks
