Hi all,

In the spirit of the 'writeCellCenters' utility, I would also need a
'writeCellVolumes' utility.

Has anybody already written such king of utility ?

Regards,

There are two possiblities: a)copy the sources of writeCellCenters and replace C() with V() b) use funkySetFields (http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Co...funkySetFields) with the expression "vol()" I prefer the second option. But I'm biased Bernhard

I'm not certain that this will work directly. The V() method just returns the internal field (whereas C() returns a volVectorField), so you'll need to do something extra about the boundaries if you want to make a volScalarField out of it. Thus don't be surprised if the constructor doesn't work directly.

You are right. It certainly won't work. The question that I ask myself: do I keep forgetting that because I use FSF for that kind of stuff or do I use FSF because I keep forgetting that?

Hi Bernhard,
If you start forgetting which of the things it is that you keep forgetting - it's quite a bad sign
