Hi, I just run my simulation on Openstudio but failed. I tried to find some answers here but couldn't find something similar to my situation. I'm running the simulation on Mac OS Mojave V10.14. so please can you help?

Here is the error from eplusout.err file. but I don't know how to fix them.

Program Version,EnergyPlus, Version 9.2.0-921312fa1d, YMD=2020.02.17 15:41, * Severe * <root>[Material][Material 1][specific_heat] - "0.100000" - Expected number greater than or equal to 100.000000 * Fatal * Errors occurred on processing input file.

EnergyPlus material object 'Material 1' in your model has an unrealistic specific heat value (0.1 J/kg-K) that is below the allowable minimum value of 100 J/kg-K. This is likely because you created a default material in OpenStudio with specific heat of 0.1 J/kg-K and did not adjust the value to match your target material. If this material is not used in an construction in your model, delete it, otherwise update the material properties to have realistic values matching your target material. In OpenStudio, you can drag and drop materials from the library into your project.
