Dear all,

I am a new learner in OpenFOAM and I'm studying a Backward-Facing Step flow case.
After my simulations, I would like to extract the lowerwall cell which flow reattach in and its coordinates.

I would compare the velocity component sign in the flow direction (x) between two neighbour cells, but, how can I select the right cells?
Then, can I obtain their coordinates?

I had no success trying to use "mesh.C()".

Thanks in advance!
