I am using openFoam version 1906 on ubuntu 14.06 operating system and i have tried to use one of the new functions (columnAverage) but it seems that something is wrong with it. I used it in order to perform a spatial average in the span-wise direction (z-direction) but the results are not correct.
The function is added to controlDict ``
type columnAverage; libs ("libfieldFunctionObjects.so"); writeControl writeTime; patches (front); fields (p pPrime2Mean wallShearStressMean); }`
I have the front plane is normal to z-direction,so i choose the front plane as a patches in the columnAverage function
The result of pPrime2Mean wallShearStressMean are shown below pPrime
The columnAverage results seems to be incorrect
