ERROR #004100018 occured
Hi all:

I met a problem on "ERROR #004100018 has occurred in subroutine FINMES. Message: Fatal overflow in linear solver."

before the problem occured the iteration(11) rate increased to several times of the formal iteration(10),and the iteration(12) rate fell to about 0.05¡£who know what the problem was. thanks !!

your kind help will save much my time.

Hi, Check the manual but this sounds like a mesh or time step problem to me (there is a section which explains what this means). First try reducing the physical time step and seeing the effect. If this doesn't work see if you can improve the mesh.
