Kinematic Diffusivity error
Hi everybody
These days I have been studying a case of electric arc. I set an additional Variable name EPOT whose equation is diffusive transport equation.And I set the kinematic diffusivity as "Electric Conductivity/density*factorPhi".Electric Conductivity is also an additional Variable whose equation is algebraic equation.And its value I have set as constant.But when I run the case I met the following error: Error processing expression 'Kinematic Diffusivity'. The expression is invalid because: Electric Conductivity is not available for use in this term Error processing expression: Kinematic Diffusivity = Electric Conductivity/density*factorPhi What is the problem?How can I solve it?Thank you very much! lg88 
Electrical conductivity does not appear on the list of available variables. I would set the electrical conductivity to equal a CEL expression, then you can use this CEL expression in calculations like this one.

Thanks to Glenn.I have set the electrical conductivity to equal a CEL expression.And the error has been solved.But I met a new problem when I run the case.

This looks like two independant problems. The first one is you have not set any pressure level, so it guessed one. You should define a pressure level in your simulation somehow  either a pressure inlet or outlet, initial condition or something.
The second problem is regarding a gradient calculation of electrical potential. Not sure about this one, I would fix the first problem and see if this persists. But it probably is unrelated to the pressure level problem.
