Dear all,

Maybe this is a silly question, is there any function object in the postProcess utilities to compute the flow rate only of alpha.water at the outlet?

I am using '
postProcess -func 'flowRatePatch(name=outlet)'
'. However it displays the total flow rate (alpha.water and alpha.air). Should I use another utility or add some arguments to the function?

I really appreciate any advice.

Kind regards,
