SandilyaCFD is on a distinguished road
I am trying to solve two scalar transport equations using OpenFoam.

//Equation 1

U = -constant * fvc::grad(V);

surfaceScalarField phiU
(fvc::interpolate(U) & mesh.Sf())


//Scalar Equation 2

+ fvm::div(phiU,R)
- fvm::laplacian(DR,R)


How do I calculate the flux term. The term U above is the convective velocity for the species R. But I need to calculate the flux.

I use the surface scalar field option but the scalar R does not experience convection when I run.

Thank you.
