Dear Foamres

I have defined a ramp BC for a parameter to increase from 0 in the start to 2 in the end of simulation (0.15 sec)

    (0    0)
    (0.15  2)
However, during simulation when the quantity reaches around 1.5, it diverges. this is my output:

 Courant Number mean: 0.0187511 max: 0.307637
deltaT = 2.20033e-05
Time = 0.113157

diagonal:  Solving for rho, Initial residual = 0, Final residual = 0, No Iterations 0
DILUPBiCG:  Solving for Ux, Initial residual = 3.29237e-05, Final residual = 3.19744e-12, No Iterations 2
DILUPBiCG:  Solving for Uy, Initial residual = 0.0056262, Final residual = 1.44868e-12, No Iterations 3
DILUPBiCG:  Solving for Uz, Initial residual = 0.000508302, Final residual = 1.91713e-11, No Iterations 2
DILUPBiCG:  Solving for Z, Initial residual = 3.85859e-06, Final residual = 4.80055e-10, No Iterations 1
Correcting mixture fraction variance with CvarZ = 1
Correcting scalar dissipation rate with Cchi = 1.50876

Segmentation fault
Would you PLZ hint me why this happens?

In $FOAM_TUTORIALS/multiphase/interPhaseChangeDyMFoam/propeller/ there is an example of a time depending boundary condition defined by a table.
