OpenFOAM has this cool feature

For my future reference

I have published a collection of such function objects on
that do simple evaluations that are sometimes useful like averages, integrals, forces, mass-flows on patches and/or volumes.

The actual library can be downloaded via subversion:
svn checkout r/libraries/simpleFunctionObjects/

If anyone has
* ideas for extensions (a liftDrag-FunctionObject comes to mind)
* bugfixes/stylistic suggestions (and there are bound to be some)
she/he is welcome to contribute these via the technical wonder that is called subversion (you'll just need write access to the svn)
