Dear Foamers,

Within the forAll loop, I need to find the owner of faceI and get the cell value of T.

fixedGradientFvPatchScalarField& bufferField= refCast<fixedGradientFvPatchScalarField>(T.boundar yField()[patchIndex]);
scalarField& bufferMesh = bufferField.gradient();
forAll (bufferField, faceI)


Thanks all in advance

I think it's in lduMesh. Look through fvMesh, lduMesh, primitiveMesh. It'll be owner_ or something like that. One of them will give you access. Discretization schemes use it... look in GaussConvection, or Laplacian.

Thanks for the tip. Just for others who might have the same issue...below is the code that should be within the forAll loop to access the cell value:

const unallocLabelList& owner = mesh.owner();
Info << T[owner[faceI]];
