Sampling tool for Lagrangian particles
Dear OpenFoamers,

Is there a sampling tool for Lagrangian particles ? i.e, I would
like to collect particle statistics such as mean particle size, mean
particle velocity etc., at an arbitrary surface inside the domain
DURING the simulation ?

I saw from another post that there is an utility called
functionObject for doing this for Eulerian fields. I am looking for the
lagrangian particles.

Please let me know

Sampling utility for lagrangian particles
Hello Sankar,
I am looking for something very similar to this. Could you find anything that is already available in OpenFOAM that samples the particle statistics at defined locations?
Does anybody else have any idea if this has already been implemented in OpenFOAM?
