    Hello,

    I am having difficulty run a simulation without this error happening (please see attachment).

    It tells me to lower it below 1 second. but I have it set at 0.1.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I am trying to test out a furnace that will reach a temperature of 1200c. This is my first time using the software and to be quite honest I do not understand a lot of the settings inside so I am wondering if it is my set up.

    What type of example might be a good example to start off trying to build a furnace simulation?

    Thanks for this very interesting software!
    Ben

    This is possibly because of the high temperature. The solver can’t deal with 1200 C without “blowing up.” If you increase the conductivity by 10-100 times (to simulate the radiation heat loss), you may be able to stablize it.
