Default Error occurred during calculate mass flux

Hello everyone,

I am trying to calculate the mass flux in my multi-phase model using UDF.

Here is the equation below(ignore term (1-beta))

When I wrote all of equation into my UDF, an error occurred.

Error: cx-set-real-entry: wta[2](float)
Error Object: -1.#inf
I've search on Google, but I didn't get too much useful information.

I think the problem occurred due to the syntax error, but still can't figure it out.

Here is my UDF code below

Parameter "p_sat" and "mass_flux" are new code I added.

If I calculate p_sat, mass flux and q_vap, the case will diverge due to Temperature, so I try to reduce the relaxation factor of Energy, but it didn't work.

If I just calculate p_sat and mass flux, the case work well but can't read contour after calculate(The error above will occur.)

Can anyone help me?

Thanks a lot !

C_UDMI(c,t,psat) = p_sat;
C_UDMI(c,t,mflux) = mass_flux;
C_UDMI(c,t,qvap) = q_vap;

return source;
