Hello foamers!

I'm a starter in OpenFOAM working on a project about bridge overflow.
There are many ways to compute the flow rate at inlet/outlet patch and also some arbitary plane inside the mesh.
But as far as I know, all those methods can only be applied to the entire cross section.
Is there a way to compute the flow rate/mass flow in separated sections?
Or maybe some hints on calculation of flow in two outlets (which could somehow resemble the case) ?

bridge design, flow rate, free surface flow, incompressible flow, mass flow splitting
