Default laminar RANSModel in dieselFoam

Dear all,

I am using 1.5version dieselFoam. I have several questions. Your help will be highly appreciated!

1. I could run my case with kEpsilon/RNGkEpsilon RANSModel, but the case goes to crash if I use laminar RANSModel, and I got the following error message. I wonder is it caused by the turbulent time scale calculation I found in dieselFoam.C? Does anyone know something about this?

Floating point exception

2. I also got Evaporation Continuity Error message? any idea?

Number of parcels in system | 78
Injected liquid mass....... | 74285.7 mg
Liquid Mass in system...... | 74285.7 mg
SMD, Dmax.................. | 99.1116 mu, 149.87 mu
Added gas mass = 9.78229 mg
Evaporation Continuity Error| 9.78229 mg
ExecutionTime = 2.07 s ClockTime = 11 s
Courant Number mean: 0.016882 max: 0.0982951
deltaT = 0.00047619
Time = 0.0190476

3. what is the proper maxCourant number? I used 0.4 in the beginning, but in some cases I have to use 0.1 or 0.05.

4. I need to make sure what governing equations are being sloved, would you like to let me know where to start?

Thank you in advance!

as for the Evaporation Continuity Error, I am running for non-evaporating spray and turn off the evaporation model.
