SolidWorks crashing during flow simulation

I am running an external analysis on our Formula Student car for a thesis project, trying to develop an undertray diffuser. I have run many simulations (mostly) without issue, but there is one model which I cannot get to run. When I begin meshing, Solidworks closes.


All of the models have identical mesh, computational domain and boundary conditions (a moving ground is set up to simulate real life), and as far as I can tell I have set up all other parameters the same.


I have managed to get simulations to run on this model a few weeks ago, then I changed the speed of the fluid flow and can't get it to work, despite having done the same thing for the two other models I have.


Does anyone have any ideas? I don't think its a hardware/memory issue seeing as I can run other sims just fine.
