Is any simple way in OpenFoam of in Paraview to calculate integrated quantities, such as surface average of temperature?
I'm trying to simulate conjugate heat transfer in a fin and would like to calculate heat transfer coefficient.

Thank you!

You should be able to use the command line patchAverage utility like this:

> patchAverage T myPatchName


I hope that does what you wanted!
