is this a moving mesh or a static mesh?
The run stops because probably you have a very bad mesh...

you can do these steps after finishing create results
1. read result
2. type check negvol 10 ice <here 10 is just randam cset, u can use different also>
3. cset news cset 10
4. cplo
5. check these cells, where it is, if it is in static region correct them by using filling linear or some other else.

I think u know most of these, but for info i am written here.

Please inform the present status
