[Mesa-users] Adiabatic Mass Loss with Constant Entropy

I am a PhD student at the University of Surrey, where I am working on Common Envelope evolution. For the past couple of weeks, I have been attempting to create a model of adiabatic mass loss with constant entropy. I have been unsuccessful in my endeavors and was wondering if anyone in this group knew how to perform such a simulation.

It is worth noting that I have attempted using the "create_initial_model = .true." command, as well as setting initial mass, radius, and temperature. No matter what I set the stellar parameters to, I am told that the temperature is "too low" for integration. I could put 10d30 as a temperature, and the program will still tell me that it cannot perform the integration. If anyone here could lend a hand, it would be greatly appreciated!
