How do I calculate mass flow in outlet? Is is possible to do this in paraFoam?

I found posts how to calculate Yplus in older open foam versions. What is the easiest way to calculate Yplus in open foam 2.0.0? Can I use yPlusRAS? I have heard that yPlusRAS actually calculates Y* value. Is this the case with open foam 2.0.0 and yPlusRAS?

Not sure if you still need this, but:

- For mass flow at the outlet, i use simpleFunctionObjects (http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Co...unctionObjects)
