Probes Function in Controldict vs Probes Filter in ParaView
 
Hello everyone,


I'm currently using OpenFoam with the BlastFoam solver to simulate some detonations, and I'm currently running into a couple of problems.


I have both probes, and overpressure fieldmax functions in my controldict file, and therein lies the issue.


I usually use the probes file to create an excel file, and from there I can take the maximum value in a column and use that as the maximum overpressure.



The maximum values in the overpressure probes file is quite a bit lesser than the values shown by the probe filter, and I don't know what I'm doing wrong.


I'd appreciate it if anyone can point me in the right direction. Thanks!
