Hi all,
Does anybody have an insight about why the convergence history in CFX Solver Manager doesn't show any plot?
The simulations is running since 24hrs and seems locked at the first iteration.
Thanks for your contributions

Some options:
* CFX does occasionally lock up on the first iteration. Just kill the task, clean up, and try starting again.
* Your simulation is far too complex and will take centuries to run. Better think about what is actually possible, you are too ambitious.
* CFX is locked up in starting up. This could be a weird setup thing or a bug in the software. Simplify your model one physics option at a time and try to identify which option is causing the problem.
