Hi all,

While running the simulation in Fluent. i am getting this error.

Out of memory.malloc_storage: unable to malloc velocity SA.

I have a model which has got upto 4 million elements.

My system is dual core processor with 4 gig RAM.

Can some one guide me on this please.

Your PC has not enough memory. Maybe you can try to run Fluent in single-precision mode (fluent 3d), if you are satisfied with the accuracy of the solution. Otherwise you have to upgrade your PC with more memory.

Best Regards, Karl
