Hi everybody,

I'm try to use the combustion model class of openfoam, it has a member function that returns the source therm for species equations (Reaction rate):

virtual tmp<fvScalarMatrix> R(volScalarField& Y) const = 0;

If I understand well, this funcion is overloaded with the calculation way provided by reaction model for R that is selected at runtime. it function returns a fvScalarMatrix. My question is if I want to define a new volScalarfield, for example, Rates, It is possible to utilices this fvScalarMatrix and define a volScalarField , exists any form to make this conversion ?

Any advice will be graatly appreciated, thanks in advance
