# POLYFLOW - Flow case with full slipping and inflow (constant normal force) may fail

When defining a flow case (extrusion or not) with inflow calculation based on constant normal force and involving full slipping, the calculation may diverge.
This may also happen with prior...

# Interrupting the fluent simulation when field variable exceeds any user-defined limit

Sometimes a particular flow variable (Pressure, velocity, temperature etc) diverges and leaves behind unreasonable results
which are of little use. In many such cases, it helps to automatically...
