1 Short description

A patch to the foamCalc tool to enable some extra field operations such as min and max.

2 Usage

The utility works the same way as the standard foamCalc tool, but accepts extra parameters (min, max, volIntegrate, average, grad, scalarMultiply):

foamCalcEx min <fieldName> [-latestTime] [-time ranges] 

foamCalcEx max <fieldName> [-latestTime] [-time ranges]

foamCalcEx minMax <fieldName> [-latestTime] [-time ranges]

foamCalcEx cellMinMax <fieldName> [-latestTime] [-time ranges]

foamCalcEx volIntegrate <fieldName> [-latestTime] [-time ranges]

foamCalcEx average <fieldName> [-latestTime] [-time ranges]

foamCalcEx grad <fieldName> [-latestTime] [-time ranges]

foamCalcEx laplacian <fieldName> [-latestTime] [-time ranges]

foamCalcEx multiplyDivide <fieldName> multiply/divide -field/value <scalar_value>/<fieldName> [-latestTime] [-time ranges]
