I am working with emulsions and would like to calculate the Droplet Size Distribution (DSD) over a 3D domain. I am using interIsoFoam for my simulation and as a result I have available a volScalarField of the volume fraction.

I did a bit of a research and I couldn't find any postProcessing utility that does what I am looking for.

So my question is whether there is available any OpenFOAM tool that I am missing (I was also considering to post-process my data in ParaView but I dont know how tricky this can get).

Any hint/literature is highly apreciated.

I'm working on the secondary atomization using interFoam, and I also want to extract the droplet size distribution. Have you found a way? Thank you.
