Floating point exception error

    • DanielAdeyinka


      I am trying to simulate a flow through a packed bed, but just as I'm about to initialize my solutions, I get the "FLOATING POINT EXCEPTION " error message. Any help please?

      Floating point exceptions could be based on several reasons - ill defined boundary conditions, unrealistic initial values. Please provide us some more details about your model.

      Thank you very much Karthik. I have discovered where the error was. 

      I forgot to delete a contact region before manually defining the interfaces, hence the "floating".
