Hello fellow openfoam-users,

I'm trying to modify wallGradU to write the sn-gradient of scalar T at the wall calculated by scalarTransportFoam.

It seems to be very straightforward, it compiles and runs but I want to make sure the results are correct.
Here is what I did:

Im creating an IOObject,
and an object wallGradT:
            volScalarField wallGradT
and calculating the surface-normal gradient just as in wallGradU:
wallGradT.boundaryField()[patchi] = -T.boundaryField()[patchi].snGrad();
Is this the right way?
I want to make sure I'm getting correct results..

Thanks in advance!

That looks believable. You can find almost the same logic in applications/utilities/postProcessing/wall/wallGradU/wallGradU.C
