Hello all,

I am facing a strange problem. I am using motorbike tutorial's settings. I have an pipe geometry which I have created in Pointwise a year ago and exported the mesh a year ago. The mesh is working fine. Last month I have opened the same pointwise file with pipe geometry and didnt make any changes and exported the mesh. Now I am facing a printstack error with the same mesh. The error is:

#0 Foam::error:rintStack(Foam::Ostream&) at ??:?
#1 Foam::sigFpe::sigHandler(int) at ??:?
#2 ? in "/lib64/"
#3 Foam::symGaussSeidelSmoother::smooth(Foam::word const&, Foam::Field<double>&, Foam::lduMatrix const&, Foam::Field<double> const&, Foam::FieldField<Foam::Field, double> const&, Foam::UPtrList<Foam::lduInterfaceField const> const&, unsigned char, int) at ??:?
#4 Foam::symGaussSeidelSmoother::smooth(Foam::Field<d ouble>&, Foam::Field<double> const&, unsigned char, int) const at ??:?
#5 Foam::smoothSolver::solve(Foam::Field<double>&, Foam::Field<double> const&, unsigned char) const at ??:?
#6 ? at ??:?
#7 ? at ??:?
#8 ? at ??:?
#9 ? at ??:?
#10 __libc_start_main in "/lib64/"
#11 ? at ??:?
Floating point exception

I have checked two geometry and everything is same except the faces file is written in different order in polyMesh folder but number of cells are exactly same. CheckMesh results are exactly same. I tried to create a simple cube and pipe geometry from scratch and now they create the same print stack error. I couldnt understand the reason and I am becoming insane. I will appreciate any help.

In the attachment I have put one running pipe case and one not running case with same geometry and also my simple cube case.
(I couldnt add the files here I out a link to files)
Thank you,

if anyone is interested it was a problem about mesh numbering
rewriteMesh -overwrite
Solved my problem
