DFLOW-FM Error crashes during run - Requested time preceeds current time

Has anyone else received this run-time error (the model ran just fine for 13.7 days of 15-day run; then stops for no apparent reason); the BC files were all read OK at start; there is nothing unusual at this point of time in the BC file.

Running DFLOW-FM command line interface on Windows.

Dear Seth,

Concerning your question, could you try the following two approaches:
1. Please double check if the time series in the BC file keeps increasing (no decreasing). If this is fine, then go to the next approach.
2. You could set a smaller value for the maximum allowed Courant number in your MDU file. Please let us know if you still get the same errors.

P.S. What is the version number of FM that you are using?

I am looking forward to your reply. Thanks.

Kind regards,

Jing

Thanks FYI Deltares found this to be numeric bug in code; they fixed in later release.
