Hi OpenFOAM-folks,

I want to calculate the heat of each cell in chtMultiRegionFoam. As I got some strange results, I let OF write the CellVolumes and summed them up as follows:

V = mesh.V()[celli];
total Volume
VSum = sum(V);
My geometry is very simple at the moment: It is a cuboid.

checkMesh output: Total volume = 2.55e-06 (conform to dimensions of geometry)
field output VSum:
        type            calculated;
        value           uniform 2.342286e-06;
Does someone has an idea, what the reason for this is?

Best regards,
