Hi to everyone!
As the title says I would like to know if in openFoam it is possible to calculate the curvature of a surface.

Thanks in advance
Simone

The faMesh class can calculate the curvature of a patch. I'm not sure if this is the kind of surface you are referring to though.

I think it's exactly what I need, because I want to calculate the curvature of a patch at each cell..

Thank you very much
