How to determine a reason of the error "Segmentation violation" and to fix it

I am simulating a model in Simulink iteratively substituting different parameters and eventually got the error:

Are using Simulink Design optimization, in that case may be you are running into a negative square root in the model. Make sure you have a check for all the square root calculations.

I am doing optimization but using my own code, not Simulink Design Optimization toolbox. Thank you, I will check.
