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!
