Default averaging selected field - multiphase

Hello All,

I am using the interFoam solver to do some droplet analysis.

Say I have the simple case of a droplet flying in x-direction. To find secondary streamlines, I'd like to subtract the average of ux of the droplet.

So what I want to do is something like:

for all i,j,t
  if alpha ==1

And then subtract ux(i,j,t)-=ux_average.

So that the primary streamlines are subtracted and I can see the secondary ones (internal circulation?? etc.)

Can anybody shed some light on how to do this?

Happy holidays

The main problem by the way is to sum over a part of the mesh.

I can use the volumeAverageFunction extension as a starting point, but they calculate the volume average of the whole mesh at once. I only need the mesh points where alpha=1.

How do I call a specific mesh point? Unfortunately I'm no pro in c++.
