Process stopped

Postby Florence.Haudin » Mon Feb 03, 2020 6:11 am

I am trying to run a long simulation (11 000 s ) with Openfast using Hydrodyn, Elastodyn et MAP modules. My floating object is a semisubmersible floater with a rigid tower and mooring system (OC6 LC5). Using WaveMod equal to 5, I am imposing the wave elevation with an external file. After 1000 or 2000 s the process stropped with the error message displayed on the attached file.
In the wave elevation file, the time input has many decimals. May it cause the crash ?
Thanks for any solution.
Best regards.

Dear Florence,

What is the error after 2000 s (the window seems to be cut off and I can't see what happens)?

I'm not sure if you are referring about the error caused when trying to write the checkpoint file, but this can be eliminated by setting ChkptTime > TMax in the FAST primary input file.

Best regards,
