Atmospheric re-entry - divergence problem

I’m working on a simulation for atmospheric re-entry analysis of a nose cone. So naturally, my velocity values are around 25 Mach. I got this error, “The solution diverged, please check your simulation setup. Divergence can also be caused by bad elements in the mesh.”
What I’m wondering is does simscale simulations in velocities such as 25 Ma or should I just focus on my meshing to solve problem?

Thanks and Regards.

Hello Alper,

SimScale supports transonic/supersonic flow with this analysis type, however I’m afraid that hypersonic flow (Mach >>5) is currently not possible.
