Default Error message-Floating point error
Posts: n/a
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.
