### Converge on 1st iteration, then Nan in second?

Posted: 29 Jan 2013, 04:03
Hello
What are possible reasons that my model seems to converge OK in the first Navier-Stokes iteration, but then starts right away with NaN residuals in the second?

Here's the output:
....

: 26 0.5092E-06 0.5092E-06

: 28 0.1305E-07 0.1305E-07

Hi Einat,

Did you find any solution to this problem? I am also facing the same situation and have no idea why this happens !
