Default converting velocities from cell centers to corner

Hello All,
I am trying to convert velocities from cell centers to corners.
OpenFOAM saves information of velocities in cell centers but
paraView displays velocities on the corners. How can I do that?
In few words, how can I obtain the numerical values of the velocities
displayed with paraView (in the corners), while velocities files
save the values in the cell centers?

Greetings Mauro and welcome to the forum!

Sorry for the late reply, but I was hoping that someone else would have answered you sooner, while I was busy for these past weeks.

As for your question, I can't figure out what exactly you want to do with the values afterwards. Because I think there are two possible answers to your question:
  • If you want the values from ParaView on the vertexes, you can simply export the values to CSV: File -> Save Data
  • If you want to calculate in OpenFOAM the values of U on the corners of the cells, then I think what you are looking for is the following utility:
    Study its code if you want to implement this feature into a custom solver you are making.
Best regards,
