-mAx- will become famous soon enough
I'm a beginner with OpenFOAM (but used to work with Fluent).
I was looking for something for monitoring a quantity during the iterations.
Basically I want to watch the evolution of the massflow rate (or pressure)on a surface during the iterations.
I found the calcMassFlow utility, but the compilation failed.
Anyway I think it should be possible to implement a code for this (like an UDF with Fluent), but where?.
Any idea?
