 December 9, 2010, 02:18 How to calculate double integration in OpenFOAM #1 Senior Member   Vishal Nandigana Join Date: Mar 2009 Location: Champaign, Illinois, U.S.A Posts: 206 Rep Power: 9 Dear Foamers, I would like to know if we could integrate a variable over x and y at the same time respectively. I know integrate variable function can perform integration along x or y direction at a time. But is it possible to perform double integration in OpenFOAM. Kindly let me know. Thanks Vishal Nandigana

I think I can help... What is the name of the 1-D integration function that you mentioned? - Bill

Basically I have a rectangular channel and I want to integrate a variable say 'u' along a desired length (say from x1 to x2) and across the entire cross section of the channel (i.e from y1 to y2). I would like you to throw some light with regard to this. I hope I made my point more clear now. The function I was talking about to integrate in 1-D is integratevariable function in paraview. Thanks Vishal Nandigana

A for loop and some if-statements would do the trick, but only if you're comfortable doing that. Otherwise, it may be possible in Paraview, but I don't know how you'd do it. - Bill

The problem is the area I would like to integrate is not constant for all cases. The y direction is constant but not in x direction. I have to view the result and only then perform the x integration. So I wonder if changing the solver would help. Do correct me if I am wrong. Thanks Vishal Nandigana

Can somebody write an example of how to do it? Thanks in advance Last edited by isabel; September 1, 2011 at 08:27.
