Hello foamers,

could anybody explain to me, how it is possible to extract u components from a probed u field or to calculate the u magnitude (I used the probes1 function in openfoam)?
I used this code:

functions
(
probes1
{

....

// Fields to be probed. runTime modifiable!
fields
(
p
U <- do I have to change this?
);
}
);

I need a result file that contains either ux, uy, uz, or u magnitude versus time.
I would be very happy if somebody could help me with this.
Thanks,
Sandu69

I know one trick which might be helpful here, but I'm not sure whether it is exactly what you need.

Using ParaView you can use option File > Save Data > e.g. CSV file
