FLuent Parallel Error.
Hi everyone,

I am simulating a 3D dynamic stall phenomena of an airfoil. I use the dynamic mesh method to smooth and remesh the mesh at every time step and a udf to pitch the airfoil and i have a non conformal interface. I initially run the steady state solver in parallel with 4 processes for 2000 iterations w/o dynamic mesh and udf and it runs fine. But when I switch dynamic mesh and transient solver on, the simulation crashes after approximately 300 time steps with the following message :

999999 (..\src\mpsystem.c@1148): mpt_read: failed: errno = 10054

999999: mpt_read: error: read failed trying to read 4 bytes: No such file or directory
The Parallel FLUENT process could not be started.

Does anyone know what can cause this problem? For your information I am running Fluent v12 with an i7 860 quad core with 8gb of RAM and my mesh size is approximately 2.5 million.

Sometimes, it may help to turn of Dynamic mesh load balancing in the parallel->partition and load balancing panel

I had this same problem, but got rid of it when I went back to Pointwise (from which I had exported the grid) and defined the volume conditions. This worked for me on two separate cases so it's definately worth a try.
