Hi everyone,

I am currently running a 2D simulation on porousSimpleFoam, in which I am importing a surface (with no thickness) as a set by means of topoSetDict (which I can then turn into a cellZone by using setsToZones) to model a parachute.

What I am trying to do, is to output a file containing the pressure on the top/bottom of the surface (or, alternatively, the pressure difference on the set) as a function of location on the cartesian mesh. I was thinking of using some function objects or SampleDict for this, but it looks like I should transform my set/zone to patch first? Should I try to create a Baffle perhaps? The issue is that I would not have a neighbour patch as the set has no thickness

Many thanks
