I'm trying to solve only certain directions of the continuity equation, but still in a 3D environment.

I understand that I can take the component of a vector with the following:
U.component(2) would return the z velocity.

Now I want to solve the z component of continuity:

Which fvm:: function should I use to solve for w? I know the equation will look like:

fvm::ddz(w) == w/rho*fvc::grad(rho)&mesh.C().component(2)

or do I need to copy the ddt template and make my own ddz function?
