Hi everybody,

I am kind of new to OF, so sorry if the question is basic.

I have a converged solution with different fields being saved in the time folders. Now I want to average certain variables (U,p,T,...) over arbitrary surfaces/lines, which are NOT same as my patches.

I know it is possible to define sample surfaces using sample utility. Also I know about the functionObject patchAverage, but none is exactly what I am looking for.

I am sure there should be something. Could somebody make a suggestion?

Cheers,

P

After having the average fields you can sample them in paraview
