You can also use foamCalc to do other things like calculate the magnitude of a volVectorField:
Code:

And as of OpenFOAM 2.2, you can find more details about boundary conditions and function objects here: http://foam.sourceforge.net/docs/cpp/modules.html

What you're looking for is in the section Coupled boundary Conditions

The general idea is that:

1. load the case unchecking polyhedral decomposition
2. filter : Extract Cells by Region

On the explaination of laplacianFoam
This is extracted from the blog dyfluid.com.

Code:

I just send you the paper you asked, and it might be a use after all, for your problem.
If you look at Eq. (8) in the paper (see also eq
