This is a average on the cutting plane

can you confirm me that the function object below in ControlDict is the correct and fastest way to calculate average over cutting planes in a 3D simulation during runtime?
it seems to work but I'm not 100% sure about the results...

see through this. How they figure it out.

I see that you've got 2 reports on this topic:
If I understand you correctly, you want to do a plain average of the fields over the existing time snapshots?

In addition, do you mean that the average results for a dynamic mesh are acceptable for doing

Context: I'm coupling a FEM code (Feap) and OpenFOAM to solve FSI problems by a partitionned strategy. I try to validate this coupling.
To be more precise, i'm using the solver icoDyMFoam of OpenFOAM 1.4.1. The mesh is solved with the following options :

Basically, I am looking to do something like:

I have seen many many tutorials and examples where the domain motion is a

post-processing utility R, calculating Reynolds stress tensor

Use utilities to do the channel case.

The problem I experienced is basically related to the compressible nature of my simulation and it seems that the R-utility is written exclusively for
