Hi,
I am trying to run a scenario of a three dimensional wedge in supersonic flow, using rhoCentralFoam. The solution will iterate for a while, but then it will crash and I get the following error: #0 Foam::error:rintStack(Foam::Ostream&) in "/home/cdoolan/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM1.6/lib/linuxGccDPOpt/libOpenFOAM.so" #1 Foam::sigFpe::sigFpeHandler(int) in "/home/cdoolan/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM1.6/lib/linuxGccDPOpt/libOpenFOAM.so" #2 Uninterpreted: #3 Foam::sqrt(Foam::Field<double>&, Foam::UList<double> const&) in "/home/cdoolan/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM1.6/lib/linuxGccDPOpt/libOpenFOAM.so" #4 Foam::tmp<Foam::GeometricField<double, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh> > Foam::sqrt<Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh>(Foam::tmp<Foam::GeometricField<doub le, Foam::fvPatchField, Foam::volMesh> > const&) in "/home/cdoolan/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM1.6/applications/bin/linuxGccDPOpt/rhoCentralFoam" #5 main in "/home/cdoolan/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM1.6/applications/bin/linuxGccDPOpt/rhoCentralFoam" #6 __libc_start_main in "/lib/libc.so.6" #7 _start at /usr/src/packages/BUILD/glibc2.9/csu/../sysdeps/i386/elf/start.S:122 Floating point exception I have tried turning off the floating point exception catching, which allows the solver to iterate until the end time, but I cannot view in post processing as the solution space contains NaN values. I am building my mesh in Gmsh, and importing into OpenFOAM (with which I have no problems). My initial condition files are below: p: Code:

Is there anyone here willing to have a look at this for me? I can't for the life of me figure it out. It would be greatly appreciated as I am pulling my hair out.
Thanks in advance, Alan

Hi Alan,
I would say even as advanced cfd user it is nearly impossible to give the answer to your problem... Just some advice how I would proceed if I were you: Start writing out results very often and look at intermediate results. If crashing is due to bad mesh quality you may see it in the intermediate results , that some single cells get large values which are then later "exploding"  check your direction vector for velocity in the boundary condition, does it really match to the geometry?  how do you initialise the solution? If this is a turbulent flow, don't start from scratch...You can run a "potentialFoam" before or reduce your velocity magnitude, to have less severe starting conditions for the solver...  make a "checkMesh"...with errors in the output there my experience is, that you will not have a stable run in most cases... Good luck for this "hunt". It wouldn't be CFD, if it would never happen that one has exactly the same problems, you have now. Kerstin

Maybe you could try to modify the pressure initial conditions to
Code:
inlet { type zeroGradient; } outlet { type fixedValue; value uniform 0; }

I also have a FPE error that keeps coming back and I can't figure out what initiates it...

Alan,
I'd support the idea with mesh checking! Although I've never done any supersonic flow computations, I'm not very sure with your boundary cond. First if the obstacle is wall, it should have not a patch, but wall keyword in the boundary file, but I'm not sure if it makes difference. What is more important I think you need some more advanced BC tuned for supersonic pressure then zeroGradient. Looking at the tutorials for your solver I see there are some pressureTransmittive BCs. For example I do not understand your pressure at inlet = 1; Why 1? My guess would be identify the closest tutorial to your case and have a look at the tutorial settings for BC. good luck matej

Thanks for the replies guys. I think the problem may lie in my mesh. There are some highly skew elements along the wedge's surface, and when the shockwave reaches these elements, the simulation crashes.
I don't think there should be a problem with the BC's, as it is based on other supersonic tutorials in the rhoCentralFoam solver, and I have done other simulations without problems. I will try and play around with them though to see if it helps. Thanks again for the responses. Alan

Im trying to solve a freejet problem by rhoCentralFoam [OF 1.5]. My domain represents a close chamber in which the jet enters at Supersonic conditions.
My code crashes due to a FPE , I am getting ve pressure & density at the outlet . Quote:

Do you have timestep adjustment on? I noticed a similar behavior when using a moving mesh with GGI doing cell layer/addition. Residuals were fine and then suddenly an FPE. I could restart from the latest time step and it would make it past that point, but then at some later time it would happen. I eventually set an maximum timestep that was pretty low, and the problem went away  no more need to baby sit and keep restarting. Don't know if that helps.

Hi James,
it has been quite a while since I found a way out of this problem, so I don't recall exactly how I did it. Thanks for the tip, I will keep it in mind if I stumble against such a problem again. Louis
