floating point exception overflow error
I'm trying to run a simulation involving a pump that looks like this:

In the scalar scene of velocity I could see the values were extremely large. I suspect it's because of the tight clearance between the teeth of the gears and the pump housing? Is there some way to handle this in STAR?

Here is the sim file:
