Spanwise average in StarCCM+

I am using StarCCM+ to simulate a 3D hump problem. I have a converged solution of a steady RANS.

I have experimental results of specific x-locations where velocity u has been plotted with respect to y. So what I want to do is this.

At a specific x location have spanwise average of u-velocity at every y-location. My grid is structured so y-values at every spanwise plane is same.

I am able to create a contour plot of u-velocity using DerivedPart -> Plane Section but can't seem to get a hang of how to creare u(spanwise average) versus y at specific x locations.

When I try area average it takes the average of every point in the plane and gives one number as the result.

Thanks in advance,

How about a line probe or a series of points?

Re: Spanwise average in StarCCM+
That's what I am looking at like the mid plane but still statistically would be best to do a spanwise average.

Maybe you can find an answer in the HELP Documentation of CCM+
