Segmentation Fault - Heat and Static Current Conduction

Post by g1zer10z » 04 Mar 2020, 01:10

OS: Windows 10
Elmer Version: 8.4

Elmer gives Segmentation Fault error when running both the heat equation and static current conduction modules. We imported the mesh and from running the Static Current Conduction alone provides a good result.

New to this so not sure what file I should attached as the whole folder is too large.

Running both modules give the following command:

Hi,

this message might give a hint:
ViewFactors' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
I didn't use Viewfactors so far, so I cannot help further...

This error can occur when the program does not successfully calculate the view factors for diffused gray. Diffused gray is for radiating heat into another body or cavity. Since you don't specify that the boundary is open, the code assumes an enclosed cavity. If it is open then you have to specify open boundary and specify and external temperature (not temperature, unless you want the boundary to have a specific temperature). If you are trying to radiate heat out of the system then use idealized radiation with external temperature.

A picture of the model and a description of what the analyses is trying to do would help.

Geometry file if the mesh files are too big.
