I am trying to run a simulation of wind flow through a city. I am using the realizable kepsilon turbulence model and solving using simpleFoam.

When I run my model on a simpler mesh (smaller geometry) it seems to work fine, however, when I import my city it crashes and outputs the following errors in the log.simpleFoam file. I also tried the model with a standard kepsilon model and it produces the same errors.

If anyone can help I would be extremely grateful!

Thank you

i see the dreaded "floating point" error. simple and general answer would be to check your mesh. In a meshed city, you might have a few overlapping elements, surface orientation, etc because the geometry is complex.
