I know there is some function I can put in the controlDict, however now I am facing some special problem, that I need to calculate the time average data by existed data, e.g folder of time:"0, 10, 20, 30", and I want to calculate an average based on them. Any suggestion or hint will be great appreciated.

Thank you

Did you tried any postprocessing utility like Paraview or Tecplot?
