pirami is on a distinguished road
the followings are the error messages I got

global courant number is greater than 250.00
the velocity field is probably diverging.
Please check the solution and reduce the time-step if necessary.

i'm trying to solve two-phase flow inside a cylinderical tank which has
water jet inlet.

i've tried several models but i got the same message.
FLUENT cannot calculate even one iteration.

help me.

you need to provide more details of your case,
steady/transient? vof? explicit? what time step?

I know this is obvious, but did you try reducing the time step? it will converge slower but it should be more stable.

courant number, diverging, fluent, two-phase flow
