Does someone know how it's possible to calculate with OpenFoam or paraview the mean value of variables on given surface or volume? Thank you Eric

 November 27, 2008, 08:20 Hi Eric! Have you tried the #3 Assistant Moderator   Bernhard Gschaider Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 3,971 Rep Power: 41 Hi Eric! Have you tried the patchAverage-utility?

 November 27, 2008, 08:56 Thank you for your answer. #4 Member   Pattyn Eric Join Date: Mar 2009 Posts: 61 Rep Power: 9 Thank you for your answer. Actually, the surface i'm interested in is not a patch. The other solution i have found is to take the integrated value (Integrate Variables in paraview) on the surface and to divide the obtained value by the surface area. It works fine. Eric
