Dear Foamers,

i build a small postprocessing program, which calculates the volume of each cell and multiplies it by the a concentration of this cell. (It is a case, where I simulate the drug-transport through a coronary artery).
So I know about the mass of drug in each cell, but i would like to sum all values up, so that I get the overall value...

Does anyone have a clue, how to do this?

Thank you very much

Regards,
Martin

You can simply use
Code:
scalar sum = gSum(C);
where C is the mass scalarField.

Cheers,

Lieven

Dear Lieven,

thank you very much for your answer.
Unfortunately wmake gives out the following errors:

wirkstoffgehalt.C: In function ‘int main(int, char**)’:
wirkstoffgehalt.C:158: error: ‘sum’ cannot be used as a function
wirkstoffgehalt.C:141: warning: unused variable ‘Gesamtwirkstoffgehalt’
make: *** [Make/linux64GccDPOpt/wirkstoffgehalt.o] Fehler 1






I added this line at the end of my program.C - Code, which now looks as follows:

Ok, but you should copy the code a bit more carefully (it is gSum and not simply sum) and it is also bit tricky what you try to do in your code.
You try to create a variable with the same name as the function you are calling. I'm certainly not an C++ experiment but I can imagine that could cause problems...

Cheers,

L

Hey Lieven,

I tried another way. The program from above gives out a volScalarField (let's call it "Values")
with another program, I read in Values, and tried your "gsum" lines again, but it did nor work.
# gsum is not defined in this scope
Is a header missing?

Regards,
Martin

Dear Leaven and Lin,

thank you very much for your help!
It was a spelling problem of mine.

Now it works fine
