Hello All,

I am using the InterFoam family of solvers and am trying to include some functionality of my own.

I need to be able to measure the distance from, say, a prescribed point or boundary, to the interface. The interface location changes with time. At each time-step, this distance needs to be evaluated. Any ideas on how I might be able to do this?
