Harish050887 is on a distinguished road

I'm new to OpenFoam and was working with the pitzDaily tutorial. Can someone please tell me how do I calculate the recirculation length behind the step.
Is there any utility function in OpenFoam or option in paraview to measure the actual length of the recirculation.
