Hi all,

i need to compute a simple integration of a volumeScalar field along
one coordinate direction from z(0) to z(1) during runtime. The grid is
structured in this direction.

Can anyone point me out where i can find ideas for a simple way to
do this or has anyone done this already?

Thanks in advance

Dear Rukahr,

Use the sample utility to interpolate f onto a sampling line. Then integrate this graph.
