Default looping over selected / marked cells

Hi everyone,

just wondering if anyone can help me with this query:

i would like to loop over a set of cells adjacent to a wall boundary - say the next 5 cells next to the wall, or if that is not possible, over a set of cells marked using the adaptation menu and some metric (say mesh iso-value).

so far i only know about looping over the whole domain and looping over various threads, which typically only include (a single layer of) wall adjacent cells.

basically, i have an expression in a UDF which i want to integrate over a finite number of cells adjacent to the wall.

many thanks and best regards in advance
