Hello,

OpenFoam has function objects "fieldAverage" and "probes" to calculate and sample field data during a calculation. I use examples I have seen on certain webpages, e.g.

https://www.cfdsupport.com/OpenFOAM-...t/node148.html

https://www.openfoam.com/documentati...d-average.html

https://www.cfdsupport.com/Turbomach...al/node96.html

In order to leverage these functions, one needs to know in advance the valid field names which the functions can interpret. For example, in the case of the fieldAverage function, the example I cite employs the fields p, U, p_rgh for which data files such as pMean, pPrime2Mean, UMean, UPrime2Mean, etc.. are created.

Where can I find a helpfully descriptive and comprehensive list of the possible field value names (i.e. other than p, U, p_rgh) valid for openFOAM v1912?

For the fieldAverage function, where can I find useful documentation which explains how I can use the line items:

base <time|iter>;
// Averaging window
window 10;

What are the "optional entries"?

Thank you for your help.

I know this is an old thread, but the solution is using the banana trick:

solverName-postProcess -func "writeObjects(banana)"
