Hi everyone!

I am new at OpenFoam and focusing on the contact line behavior by using interFoam. Currently, I am trying to save the data of contact angle to output files and show the contact angle in Paraview. However, I tried several methods and got nothing.

In the boundary condition of alpha.water, I have the below setting,

type dynamicAlphaContactAngle;
theta0 100;
uTheta 0;
thetaA 100;
thetaR 100;
limit gradient;
value nonuniform List<scalar>

This boundary condition works well, but I would like to know how to show the contact angle contour in Paraview.

I tried modifying the createFields.H, but this doesnot seem to work, any suggestions on how to address this problem?

Thank you!
