Error message-Floating point error
Hi friends

I am running parallel version of fluent on a 4 processor workstation(Intel Xenon)

After some no of iterations(particularly of the order of1,00,000) i am getting an error message in which the simulation stops. That iteration step value is being displayed in iterate dialog box time step value(I am doing unsteady state analysis)

Error message- Floating point error.

Please suggest me something.

hi Ensure your "grid check" is correct check your boundary conditions and initialise the solution properly

Re: Error message-Floating point error
I am trying to solve cfd simulation of microchannel Geometry done in gambit. But in fluent floating error is ocured. please give suggestion on that, also tell me what is significance or cause of that floating error.
