Moving mesh problem
I tried to analyze a shrouded propeller with moving mesh.

I tested FLUENT 6.3 under both x64 CentOS Linux and WinXP professional edition(32bit).

After I set up the problem to solve it with moving mesh, I checked the grid but no problem was occurred.

However, when I started to iterate with unsteady solver, then I encountered following error messages...


WARNING: non-positive volumes exist.

divergence detected in AMG solver: pressure correction

Primitive Error at Node 5: floating point exception

Why this happened? :confused: Please somebody help me...TT

I also tried to solve the problem with same setting but stationary mesh, there was no problem like this at all.

When I set an moving mesh for an open propeller, there was no problem too.

Why this happened and what should I do?

for the non-positive volumes problem, you should check your remeshing settings, eg. min/max length scale and size remesh interval.

AMG solver
Hi Geon

did you solve your problem? I countered with this error too, I change factors of solve but i do not get results.

thanks in advance.

Dear ekakavand

Just made grid again and now I have no problem with my computation.
