I am doing a counter-flow heat exchanger simulation in ANSYS student version.
After I setup, I always got error "floating point exception" in calculation.
Please can somebody solve my problem?
There are my all the details:
It is recirculated exhaust gas heat exchanger which used in gas turbine. It is 200mm long with 60mm diameter.
In my geometry, this heat exchanger consists of three parts, hot air fluid domain (outer domain) , 4 solid pipes and 4 inner fluid domain (2 methane and 2 air). As you can see, there are 8 interfaces in total.
This is my meshing. I used adaptive sizing function to get less cells (119610 nodes and 326512 elements). And 4 edge sizing for pipes (20 Division hard). I don't use culvature size function because it will lead to 3300000 elements which I can't run it in student version.
This is my skewness data.
However, in my setup part. There are my setting.
Density on Y direction 9.81
Energy Equation On
Viscous - Realizable k-e Scalable Wall Function
Materials are air, methane and steel
Cell Zone Conditions.
I didn't coupled my interfaces in Mesh Interfaces.
In my Boundary Condition. There are 2 air mass- flow-inlet, 2 methane mass-flow-inlet, 1 hot mass-flow-inlet. And 5 pressure outlet in total.
All the wall material has been set to Steel.
If you need more details, please leave a comment.
Thank you very much!

Here are some suggestions about your model:
- Your mesh skewness is really high. Please try to maintain this value below 0.95.
- Please try to use conformal mesh (rather than non-conformal). This will remove all your mesh interfaces and reduce your model complexity. You will have to perform 'share topology' in SpaceClaim. Here is an excellent video on how to.
- Please make sure you have sufficient boundary layer mesh corresponding to y+ ~ 40, since you are using scalable wall functions.
I hope this helps you overcome your convergence issues.

This capability is beneficial only for applications in which the mesh motion depends on the flow field (for example, cases that use the six DOF solver or involve fluid-structure interaction). For such applications, having the mesh motion updated within the time step based on the converging flow solution results in a stronger coupling between the flow solution and the mesh motion, and leads to a more robust solver run. Implicit mesh updating allows you to run simulations that otherwise could not be solved or would require an unreasonably small time step. quoted from Ansys help centernThe main reason for this error is usually not the mesh that is not good enough, but the software cannot cope with the changing in the dynamic mesh, so the developers added this technique(Implicit Update Settings) to solve this problem.nThank you all ..nBaqer

Hello everyone, excuse me I'm having an «error object... floating point exception » issue with my calculations and I don't know how to fix it.
The calculation process goes on for a couple of minutes (about 10) then it stops and I get that message.
I'm simulating a fluid flow (oil and gas separation in a cyclone) using ANSYS Fluent.
Thanks for answering
