im very new to Openfoam and am trying to learn it. I want to run a flat plate case to compare to blasius soln. I setup the mesh and initial conditions and geometry (according to my understanding :P)

im trying to run the flat plate case using icoFoam for 1000 iterations with a deltaT of 0.01, so total 10 secs.
so my simulation runs until 1.66 secs i.e. 166 iterations. then at 1.67 i get the following error and dump msg.. ive included the msg frm 1.66 secs for ref if needed..

Time = 1.66

Courant Number mean: 1.03658e+89 max: 1.19227e+91
DILUPBiCG: Solving for Ux, Initial residual = 0.99532, Final residual = 15.6817, No Iterations 1001
DILUPBiCG: Solving for Uy, Initial residual = 0.998739, Final residual = 3.49624, No Iterations 1001
DICPCG: Solving for p, Initial residual = 1, Final residual = 7.47581, No Iterations 1001
time step continuity errors : sum local = 2.97164e+93, global = -1.6172e+91, cumulative = -1.61721e+91
DICPCG: Solving for p, Initial residual = 0.984306, Final residual = 3.82589, No Iterations 1001
time step continuity errors : sum local = 7.6204e+95, global = 2.29239e+93, cumulative = 2.27621e+93
ExecutionTime = 9.87 s ClockTime = 16 s

Time = 1.67

Floating point exception (core dumped)

I apologize if its something stupid. like i mentioned in my post, im very new and trying to learn on my own... im not completely confident about my case setup also.

Thanks a lot and i appreciate your time...
