Default floating point error
Posts: n/a
Hi all,

I am calculating cavitation in a servo valve(3d)using RNG turbulence model. After 130 iterations, I got some message as following:

Error: floating point error: invalid number

epsilon equation: tol. 1.#INFe+00 0 1.#INFe+00 1 1.#QNBe+00 2 1.#QNBe+00 . . . . . .

This means epsilon is too big to get the adequate turbulent viscosity? Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

check ur boundary conditios carefully.

also lower the values of under relaxation factor and use the coupled implicit solver

hope this will help
