The model contains an invalid value (zero) for pointer to buried pipe options
A. Change piping code from B31.3 to B31.1 because buried pipe option is not available in B31.3
B. Open Buried Pipe Options dialog (Tools> Model Options > Buried Pipe Result Options) and Press Ok so that buried pipe options pointer will be updated
The analysis set has a fluid density factor that is blank.
A. Open the analysis set, Load> Analysis set.

The soil name is changes at a bend's Near node point.
Solution: Soil property name should be the same around a bend or changes name only at the elbow's Far node point.

Solution: for troubleshooting purpose set Valve with "Actuator Auto" turned ON.
Program may terminate abnormally if invalid pipe found on NTL round trip
Solution: Logged under CAE-TR-10662, to be added to newer version of the program (Corrected Version: 9.6 and higher).
Program calculates bend far point coordinates based on bend point to the succeeding point. On NTL import, program checks if the bend point and succeeding point offset difference is almost equal to zero then it deletes the succeeding point. Similar method is followed for bend point and preceding point to get the bend near point coordinates.On deletion of point, it also deletes responding guid. But guids were not created yet for imported NTL. Therefore program crashes.
