Default fork error OpenFOAM, child process, floating point exception

anubasu is on a distinguished road
Hi all,

I am running a modified interFOam, angledDuct tut case with a pipe flow. When the mass flow rate at the inlet is sufficiently large, the case is running but when I reduce the inlet velocity or mass flow rate it is running for some time and killing itself and produced a error file called 'a call to fork system to create a child process'. I have pasted the entire error below. Any suggestions please on how to resolve this error. Thanks very much.
[6] #0 Foam::error:rintStack(Foam::Ostream&)--------------------------------------------------------------------------
A process has executed an operation involving a call to the
"fork()" system call to create a child process. Open MPI is currently
operating in a condition that could result in memory corruption or
other system errors; your job may hang, crash, or produce silent
data corruption. The use of fork() (or system() or other calls that
create child processes) is strongly discouraged.

The process that invoked fork was:

Local host: [[62800,1],6] (PID 228349)

If you are *absolutely sure* that your application will successfully
and correctly survive a call to fork(), you may disable this warning
by setting the mpi_warn_on_fork MCA parameter to 0.

Primary job terminated normally, but 1 process returned
a non-zero exit code. Per user-direction, the job has been aborted.
mpirun noticed that process rank 6 with PID 0 on node d8s4b1 exited on signal 8 (Floating point exception).
