how to calculate the m³ of a `thresholdŽ volume
I am working on a projekt where i have to compare 2 flow situations.
The focus is on the comparison of low velocity areas.
I have no problem to visualise it in paraview(3.8.1) with the `ThresholdŽ option but i would also need the m³ of these areas and i cant find a way to calculate that.
can anybody help me ?

Hi Gernot,

try "Filters->Integrate Variables". In the new spreadsheet view select attribute "Cell Data". A column with "Volume" should appear.
