Hi all,

I'm using FLUENT 6.3.26, 3ddp to simulate the air flow within an AHU room which i've meshed in TGrid.

When reading the mesh file, i saw messages popping up writing how many nodes and so, then when come to "Building: Grid-", the following message pop up:-
Warning: ST_Malloc: out of memory.malloc_storage: unable to malloc face area, size 584617752, t 12, myid 1000000.

FLUENT received fatal signal (ACCESS VIOLATION)
1. Note exact events leading to error.
2. Save case/data under new name.
3. Exit program and restart to continue.
4. Report error to your distributor.
Error Object: ()

I wonder is it something to do with my memory?

In fact i'm running 32-bit FLUENT in a 64-bit OS, i've start searching for the setup file for 64-bit but is it the reason why it can't proceed? Or other reason else?

Other than getting a compatible version with the OS to fully utilize the RAM, is there anything else i can do to rectify the problem?

Please kindly help out!!!
