Hi Good Morning!

I have been running using my propeller and this error came out :

"A floating point exception has occurred: floating point exception [Divide by
zero]. The specific cause cannot be identified. Please refer to the
troubleshooting section of the User's Guide.

Context: Field function Iteration
Command: RunSimulation
error: Server Error"

Referring to User Guide, it mentioned about solver and initial conditions.
In solver, I have ticked "Temporary Storage Retained" in K-Epsilon Turbulence". That is the only changes i did for solver.
In initial conditions under Physics, I changed the density to 998.67kg/m3 and dynamic viscosity to 0.001068Pas, that's it.

So is my input number wrong or is there other solutions?

Thank you very much!

Did you create a field function named iteration?


This problem is usually mesh related otherwise. Please post pictures of your mesh and describe the case.

And as always: If you have solved the problem yourself, it would be nice if you describe what you have done
