Hi everybody
I use the Finite area method, on a mesh converted with ccm20ToFoam, all are set well but some time when I run the case for different mesh refinement the run blow up at this statement saying Floating point Exception:

linearEdgeInterpolate(Us) & aMesh.Le();

what can produce that event?

Hi Diego,

sorry to post to such an old thread, but I'm facing the same problem right now. Did you find the exact reason and a solution? For me it seems as if the error results from a poorly set-up mesh... But I'm not sure how to fix it, as the mesh can't be changed.
