Hi everyone, I just finished a lot of cases for my project, while I found there were two cases I forgot to uncomment the fieldAverage section in my controlDict so that it did not wrote down the average information in run-time for velocity and pressure fields.

my question is, is it possible using any post processing utilities to obtain the mean and prime2Mean values for these two fields?

I tried postProcess -func fieldAverage -time xxx but got prompt "Cannot find functionObject file fieldAverage", while fieldAverage is indeed a function object listed in the mannual

There seems be an utility called valueAverage for postProcessing while it can not return prime2Mean, I am not sure

Does any one have any solution?

BTW I hope this can be done only using the data in processors, and no need to reconstruct

This utility is averaging in the fly. So I doubt it is possible. Did you store the fields at the time steps.
