Hi,

I run some cases with interFoam. But when the running time is up, if I want to continue running the cases, it shows the problem "

Greetings huxiaoxia,

This is pretty simple - the error message reads:

This means that you must edit the system/controlDict file and change that parameter from 7 to 8, or even 9 or 10!
The time resolution is very small, so if you want to save these small time steps, you'll need to increase the number of digits saved in the folder name!

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi huxiaoxia,
you should consider this "warning" only if you think you could have numerical problems due to small time steps. In any other case OF takes care of this, as you can see in the message
Time = 0.004280001
--> FOAM Warning :
From function Timeerator++()
in file db/Time/Time.C at line 681
Increased the timePrecision from 7 to 8 to distinguish between timeNames at time 0.00428
It will still save the times you have chosen in controlDict.

Regards,
sabin
