Hi all,

I solved a problem buoyant air flow inside a cone with a diffuser inside. Without the diffuser solves the problem perfectly, but I get the diffuser insert floating-point exception and ends the iteration. I tried using pressure PCG, and now I have changed to GAMG do not know if I'm wrong in using these methods. As for the other parameters I'm using PBiCG and DILU as preconditioner.
I don't know where is the error.

Hi foamers,
I have solved my problem checking maxBoundarySkewness and maxInternalSkewness to 0.5.
I wish help somebody with this,
Thanks for reed my post
