Hello all,

I need to create a rotational surface inside my domain at a fixed radius and perform some calculations on it - like calculating and averaging radial/tangential velocities and pressure.

As far as I can see it is not possible to postprocess cylindrical planes with sample. I did not manage to create a cylindrcal cut in ParaView either...

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance,

PS: I'm quite new to OF and not very experienced in C++.
