 July 16, 2003, 06:29 Coupling problems II Fixed #1 Julie Polyakh Guest   Posts: n/a After fixing the problem with collapsed faces the following problems are still present: 1) Cell face is in two or more couples with different couple types; 2) Cell in couple is undefined (still; 3) Cells found with negative volume or volume less than specified value. The first and the last messages I like least of all. Julie

Thanks to overall help I've fixed all the errors and... got an error that I've fixed already 3 times at least. It claims that I have couple with partial boundaries turned on that contains both fluid and solid cells. I know exactly that I created these couples as arbitrary with partial boundary turned off. It's just impossible! Julie
