I'm running a heat transfer analysis with radiation, convection, and a constant temperature boundary condition. I am getting the following error message:
The iterative solver stopped.
Status Code:9999 Fatal error in iterative solver
No results saved.
I can't find it anywhere and was wondering if anybody knew?
The specifics of my scenario: I've run a simple simulation with all of the heat transfer before - the only difference was that I applied radiation to only a couple of surfaces (it takes a long time so I was just checking to make sure I didn't have any basic errors). For this simulation run, I applied the radiation heat transfer to all outside surfaces of my simulation. The view factor calculation took a very long time (just over 24 hours) and then it was into the iterative solver portion. After almost two days (the timer rolls over after a day in the attached picture) I got the error message. Anybody have any ideas as to how to fix or what to change?
