I suggest using inform as I think this is the sort of thing that this feature should be good for. I must admit I think the documentation could be easier. However it seems that the way to go with this feature is to suck it and see. You need to try and find/manipulate examples and experiment.

I managed to get an average from some simple code such as below. You could try modifying this or perhaps reading the documentation and coming up with something better.

INFORM7BEGIN

** declare variable

(MAKE ASUM is 0.)

PATCH(PATCH1,CELL,1,NX,1,NY,3,3,1,LSTEP) ! patch over which this works

(STORE1 ASUM at PATCH1 is SUM(W1))

(STORED VAVE at PATCH1 is ASUM/(nx*ny))

** Print-out into INFOROUT file (PRINT of w_average at PATCH is VAVE)

INFORM7END

The VR Viewer contour-map facility displays the average value for the selected plane on the background.

This works for me (calculates local bulk velocity at NX locations in x direction) using Inform:

DO II=1,NX

PATCH(M:II:,CELL,:II:,:II:,1,NY,1,NZ,1,LSTEP)

ENDDO

(MAKE ATOT)

(MAKE UBULK)

DO II=1,NX

(STORE1 of ATOT at M:II: is SUM(ARE) with SWPFIN)

(STORE1 of UBULK at M:II: is SUM(U1*ARE)/ATOT with

SWPFIN)

ENDDO

You can also define the PATCHes in VR no problem. However if you have arbitrary shaped facetted objects the areas etc. may not be right. You can output the last value (at NX)using;

(PRINT UBULK is UBULK)

It goes to the file INFOROUT
