calculated Volume differs from BlockMesh Volume
Hi OpenFOAM-folks,

I want to calculate the heat of each cell in chtMultiRegionFoam. As I got some strange results, I let OF write the CellVolumes and summed them up as follows:


V = mesh.V()[celli];
total Volume

VSum = sum(V);
My geometry is very simple at the moment: It is a cuboid.

checkMesh output: Total volume = 2.55e-06 (conform to dimensions of geometry)
field output VSum:

        type            calculated;
        value          uniform 2.342286e-06;

Does someone has an idea, what the reason for this is?

Best regards,
