I'm trying to plot Depth of water vs time in a particular plane(almost in the center of the domain). Can anyone explain me with procedure involved. I also wanted to know what is the output i get when i use areaInt(Water.Volume Fraction) function (i.e like if we use area function we get an output of l*b).

Thanks in advance

If you do areaInt(Water.Volume Fraction) over your plane you will get the area of the plane covered with water. Divide it by the plane length and you will have the average depth.
