I never actually did any kind of wiki entry but I will try to find time at the weekend!

I did a sum of the area as well and compared it to paraView: 99.71% identical size.

I triple checked using the same data and I put more of the function objects in line and compared them to the results from paraView (they showed the same behaviour in pressure loss, but the values differ).

Now its time to learn about the sample utility (that I so far avoided).

And thanks again! I know that this is not self understanding and appreciate it.

Next step:

I defined a sampleDict with a plane exactly like in the function object and made samples of U, magU, p.
Integrating the sampled surfaces in paraView leads me to 12 m/s, so different from the areaAverage provided by the function Object.

Maybe I defined something wrong in my use of the function object, but I have no clue.
