I am simulating a supersonic laminar flow over a cylinder and this error has stalled me for a while/ I've already checked the other threads, and none of them worked so far.

What can be the problem?

Create mesh for time = 0

PIMPLE: no residual control data found. Calculations will employ 2 corrector loops

Reading thermophysical properties

Selecting thermodynamics package
type hePsiThermo;
mixture pureMixture;
transport const;
thermo hConst;
equationOfState perfectGas;
specie specie;
energy sensibleInternalEnergy;

Reading field U

Reading/calculating face flux field phi

Creating turbulence model

Selecting turbulence model type laminar
Creating field kinetic energy K

No MRF models present

No finite volume options present

Starting time loop

Time = 5e-07

Courant Number mean: 0.0597729 max: 1.37857
diagonal: Solving for rho, Initial residual = 0, Final residual = 0, No Iterations 0
PIMPLE: iteration 1
smoothSolver: Solving for Ux, Initial residual = 0.667594, Final residual = 0.239997, No Iterations 1000
smoothSolver: Solving for Uy, Initial residual = 0.999981, Final residual = 4.26033e-07, No Iterations 3
smoothSolver: Solving for e, Initial residual = 1, Final residual = 9.68353e-06, No Iterations 116

From the error output, you can see that Ux takes 1000 iterations and your CFL number is above 1. Decrease your initial timestep and max Co number as a first step to working out the problem.
