Flow Simulation of a Hydrostatic Bearing Issues

I am currently undertaking Flow Simulation analysis of a Hydrostatic Bearing for my Honours Degree Project. This is my first time using the software and I am having a few issues with the simulation that I cannot seem to solve.


1. When running the simulation, a message appears stating negative pressure. I have checked the figures and directions of the pressure and all seem to be correct.

2. Once the simulation is complete and I run flow trajectories, the software crashes when I select more than 80 points but below 80 points doesn't seem to be enough to show the flow within the bearing pocket.

Any help or pointers in the right direction would be appreciated
