Hi All,

simpleFoam stalls with the following error message after around 3600 iterations. Can anyone help me decipher this error message?

"signal: Floating point exception (8) "

One of your (patch)fields has become too big for
your precision.

Either you use 'floatTransfer' in which case your range is single precision +-1E37 or your number is outside double precision +-1E300.

Check what you expect, disable floatTransfer if necessary - though usually it is just a sign of a simulation diverging.

Hi Mattijis,

Thanks for the input. It was a case of divergence...
