couldn't allocate fine level coefficient matrix
Hello Everyone

When I am trying to initialize the Fluent Solver, it gives me an error that states:

------------------------------------------------------ Warning: ST_Malloc: out of memory.malloc_storage: unable to malloc velocity SA, size 55859712, t 2, myid 1000000.

Error: couldn't allocate fine level coefficient matrix Error Object: () ------------------------------------------------------

Have you encountered this problem anytime?? Is there something that I can do to avoid this?? I am using the DEFINE_PROFILE macro in my UDF. I have been running cases with the same conditions but different mesh sizes with success previously. I had tried sizes of 705186 and 1266606 elements previously. Now when I am trying to run the same simulation with about 2 million elements, it is giving me the above stated message.

Please let me know, as to what can be done with regards to this.

Thank you for your time

Re: couldn't allocate fine level coefficient matri
what happens is that you are trying to run a case coupled explicit and your computer does not ahve enough vortual memory for that task. just run coupled implicit. that should work. i guess.
