Hi,

I have a simple rectangular geometry and I have say three variables, C1,C2 and U. Now I would like to find the difference of C1 and C2 across the cross section, that is integrate (C1-C2) with respect to dy. similarly I would like to calculate the average velocity U across the cross the section i.e integrate U with respect to dy. I have the files of C1, C2 and U. How can I do this in OpenFoam (paraFoam).. Currently I am loading the data in matlab and then doing it but it looks a bit tedius as the data points generated from blockmesh are not uniform and further C1,C2, U files have values in the internal fields. Hence it is very difficult to integrate them across all the points using Matlab.. I would like to know how such things are can be implemented in openfoam,...

Kindly give your suggestions.

Thanks

Regards

Vishal

Hi Dragos,

You are correct, I would like to use the integrate variables filter but I don't know how exactly I should use them.. Could you throw some light with regard to this... (as in give a short procedure)

Thanks
