Simulation setup with flamelet, radiation and heat transfer crashes after a certain number of iterations with error:

Fatal bounds error detected
Variable: A1CH2OH C7H8O.Specific Heat Capacity at Constant Pressure
Locale : Domain 1

| ERROR #001100279 has occurred in subroutine ErrAction. |
| Message: |
| Stopped in routine ENFORCE_BOUNDS |

What is the reason?

It may occur that during a not yet converged run the temperature gets values for which the formula for the heat capacity defined for the component (here A1CH2OH C7H8O) delivers negative results. This can be avoided by limiting the upper temperature range for the evaluation of material heat capacity, for example to 3000K. The values of the converged solution should be between the bounds where the formula is valid.


Lower Temperature = 300.00 [K]
Midpoint Temperature = 1000.00 [K]
Upper Temperature = 3000.00 [K]
