Dear all,

I am running a Subsonic case using sonicFoam in 4 processors and I get this error message:

[0] Maximum number of iterations exceeded
[0] From function specieThermo<Thermo>::T(scalar f, scalar T0, scalar (specieThermo<Thermo>::*F)(const scalar) const, scalar (specieThermo<Thermo>::*dFdT)(const scalar) const) const

Does anyone know the reason why p { margin-bottom: 0.21cm;and how can I fix it ?

Thank you,

The question is not clear to me. Do you want to know why the code crashed, or is it something about the p field?
OpenFOAM solves the energy equation for Enthalpy (h/hs) or internal energy(e). Then it needs to invert a relation like

This is done by a Newton iteration method. If the method does not converge after a reasonable number of iterations, you get the error you mentioned.
As to why you are getting this error, it can be a lot of things, so I can't tell right away why the number of iterations is exceeded.
Hope that helps.
