error interpretation help
Hello Community,

I am trying to run a new solver I made (with a new wall function as well) and in my first run attempt after I compiled it, an error was produced. I am new to OF (but learning fast!) so I am not sure how to read this just yet. That is the insight I am looking for. I would like to know where to look for the cause of this error.

My guess to this matter is that after 23 iterations the calculation of p_rgh caused this issue. Is that correct?

Any other insights would be most appreciated.
