Default floating point error
Posts: n/a

I'm running a 2ddp, pbns, eulerian, spe, laminar, unsteady case. If I put a small number of iterations per time step, every thing is ok. However, if I increase the number

of iterations (20 for example) I got a message error just after approximately 18iterations :

Error: floating point error: overflow Error Object: ()

Why did this happen for large iteration's number and how can I remedy?

Sincerely, I have no idea!! (( I got this error previously. I think it can be related to some strange values encountred while iterating or some errors concerning the values you entered while setting the case.

Well, in any case, try to be precise as possible as you can when setting your case! that's all i can tell you! sorry! sometimes errors occur because of very insignificant lack of attention!! good luck
