Temperature greater than maximum range
Dear friends,

how to solve this warning :

warning 069 : Temperature greater than maximum range

I am using polynomial setting for the material, if I remove to constant the problem is gone, any idea?

Sounds like you need to extend the range of your polynomial. In other words your polynomial is defined over a certain range, lets assume it is 300K to 900K. StarCD is calculating a cell has temperature greater than 900K. So StarCD is letting you know you are outside the valid range. This may or may not be a problem. You should check the polynomial behavior at the temperatures calculated. If the polynomial provides reasonable values, you should be able to ignore the warning.
