Default Fluent crashes and I cannot see the error

jpina is on a distinguished road

Iím carrying out a VOF simulation using a UDF for defining the inlet velocity and my problem is that the simulation crashes unexpectedly even closing Fluent (not the Workbench though).

The problem is that, since Fluent closes, I cannot see the reason of the crash. It might be a divergence problem, a Courant number too high, etc.

How could I export all the console results to a file during the simulation, in order to see the error that Fluent might give before crashing? Or how could I know the reason of the crash?

Thanks a lot!

pakk will become famous soon enough
There might be a file named "fluent.log" in your working folder, which might show the last error that Fluent showed.
