I'm trying to solve a supersonic flow over a cavity using coodles, based on the pitzDaily case. My geometry looks like:

      |                                                    |
in -> |                                                    |  -> out
      |                                                    |
      ---------------                     ------------------
                    |                     |
                    |                     |
                    |                     |

Boundary Patches: inlet, outlet, upperWall, lowerWall (includes cavity)

Boundary Conditions:

      inlet                   outlet                  wall
U     Mach 3 (1050 m/s)       zeroGradient            no slip
P     1.4e5                   waveTransmissive        zeroGradient
T     288K                    zeroGradient            288K
I inevitably get the Maximum Number of Iterations Exceeded error if inlet velocity > Mach 1. I'm using adaptive timestep to keep Co < 1 but the solver still dies when the flow front just reaches the cavity. My thermophysicalProperties has:

thermoType      hThermo<pureMixture<constTransport<specieThermo<hConstThermo<perfectGas>>>>>;
mixture         air 1 28.9 1000 0 1.8e-05 0.7;
Initial conditions: U=0, P=1e5, T=288.

Ideas are much appreciated!
