FLUENT randomly crashes with Mellanox OFED 1.5.3 during case/data reading, iterations or while writing case/data files.

' Parallel runs using lower core counts ~64 cores will typically run fine.

[15:../../dapl_module_util.c:2033] error(0x30000): OpenIB-mlx4_0-1: could not create vc: DAT_INSUFFICIENT_RESOURCES()

Source of the problem:
Mellanox OFED version 1.5.3-1.0.0 "MLNX_OFED_LINUX-1.5.3-1.0.0" is found to be the root cause of these crashes.

Customers running with -pib option on such clusters will encounter random crashes at different stages of simulation. This issue is not yet fixed in later Mellanox OFED releases. The last known stable version is 1.5.2.

Customers using Infiniband from other vendors like QLogic etc. are not impacted with this issue. This issue is only for Mellanox hardware users.

Below are solutions/workarounds for this issue (until the actual issue is fixed by Mellanox) :<br><br>1) revert back to OFED 1.5.2<br>2) change the value of `log_num_mtt¿...

Running a large model with many joints in R14.0 results in an error message reporting "Zero Element Length"
What is causing this and how do we fix it?

One case that produced this message in R14.0 was a model of a long bridge with large dimensions. It failed when run in mm, but it solved successfully when run in meters. In R14.5, the same...

We had a customer support call (Wittgenstein AG, Igersheim)
from which we derived the following problem with plane223 in ANSYS 14:
A simple model run in 3D and 2D, with frictional heating, using solid226 (3D) and plane223 (2D) respectively has "remote displacement" boundary conditions + rigid and Large Deflection "on". Solid226 works fine, but plane223 stops in the first iteration with an error

" *** ERROR *** CP = 2.964 TIME= 09:43:21
Some of the element based thermal loads may be inappropriate. Check
applied element loads carefully. Ensure that film coefficients and
bulk temperatures are always positive. "

What is wrong with plane223?

This was a code defect (CR044772) that has been corrected for R14.5.<br>The work aorund in R14.0 for this particular test case is to replace the remote displacement boundary condition with...
