Why am I getting a turbulent viscosity ratio warning message in the console when running a case?
|The message you are seeing is more a warning than an error. It stipulates that the ratio of turbulent viscosity over the laminar viscosity is large than 1e5. While this is not an error per-say, it...|
How to implement production term due to buoyancy for k-omega equations? Note that this is automatically taken into account for k-epsilon models and RSM.
|These terms will be automatically taken into account in the future release.
For versions Fluent12.1 (and previous releases), use the following UDF:
It works for incompressible ideal gas option and...
How do I set the ISAT parameters in FLUENT?
|The numerical error in the ISAT table is controlled by the ISAT Error Tolerance, which has a default value of 0.001. This value is relatively large, which allows faster convergence times. However,...|
I get the following error when I changed my multiphase model from VOF to Eulerian in my case setup. Error:Cell_Function_Values: unrecognized function: velocity magnitude.
|This error message is due to the solution monitor (Velocity magnitude of mixture), which no longer have access to mixture velocity when you use Eulerian Model. When you use VOF model, velocity is...|
I get the following memory allocation error when I try to run the simulation. Error: 1000000: Failed to allocate 30.77MB memory (../../src/amg.c:4587) Error Object: #f
|You get this error when you do not have sufficient memory to run the case.

If I change something in my UDF, how do I recompile and relink?
|Compile the UDF and load it again. You may encounter an error when you try to recompile a UDF if your libudf is loaded into a case. In that case, go to Define > User-Defined > Functions >...|
I get error message when I try to save the data after zone reactivation in FLUENT. Why?
|If you initialize the solution after deactivating the zone, you will get error when you try to save the data file. You are not able to write the data because there is no data present for the...|
My UDF compiles in Linux, but I cannot compile it in Windows. Why?
|This behavior is mostly due to the fact the Visual C++ compiler is stricter with non-standard C features than the gcc compiler used in Linux. In particular, the most commonly (mis)-used extension...|
Why am I getting divergence on the first iteration for an axisymmetric problem? I am running a 2d axisymmetric simulation but it diverges on the first iteration with the following message:
|One reason could be that the geometry is not correct. Do a Mesh->Check to make sure you don't get

How can I resolve the following error message 'WorkBench Error: Could not register files of type:Udflib' or 'Failed in handling Fluent message'?
|If you have a UDF with your Fluent simulation, and your Fluent is within WB. The UDF has to be put under FFF/MECH directory, where the .msh file is saved, rather than FFF/Fluent directory....|
How to get rid of following error while reading mesh in Fluent: 'grid,WARNING: no face with given nodes. Thread 2, cell 429466 Error: Build_Grid: grid error.'
|Before exporting mesh for Fluent in Gambit, change parameter EXPORT_USING_UTILITY from 0 to 1.
This can be changed by going through Edit->defaults->File_IO->Fluent5
Can I read in Fluent v 6.3 case files in Fluent 6.2?
|When you created a case file with Version 6.3, and then read it into version 6.2 on a different computer. You get the following error messages every time you write or read in the case...|
How do I resolve the following error: FLUENT received fatal signal (ACCESS_VIOLATION)?
|This is the standard error caused by FLUENT trying to access data that has not been allocated.
There are several causes which we will discuss.
For example, in a UDF, you may probe the cell...
How to resolve warning message saying the turbulent viscosity limited to viscosity ratio?
|The message you are seeing is more a warning than an error. It stipulates that the ratio of turbulent viscosity over the laminar viscosity is large than 1e5.
While this is not an error per-say,...
How do I resolve the following error: Error: > (greater-than): invalid argument : wrong type [not a number] Error Object: nan
|This error occurs when FLUENT gets information from the Cortex (GUI). FLUENT is expecting to get the data in a specific format, but gets another. This generally occurs when FLUENT attempts to read...|
Error: divergence detected in AMG solver: pressure correction---what does this mean and how do I fix the problem?
|This error message is an indication that the ¬'pressure correction¬' equation is diverging. The most likely cause is that the under-relaxation factor (URF) for that equation is too...|
