ENH: improving postChannel
postChannel is an old small utility that allows to collapse data from a turbulent channel flow LES or DNS into a single profile by averaging along x and z, which are statistically homogeneous directions. There is, however, a significant downside: it is impossible to choose what fields are to be averaged. Instead, they are hardcoded, see
A couple of years ago I have developed my version of the utility which allows one to provide a list of fields to be averaged. Also, it allows you to specify the names of the patches corresponding to the top and bottom walls, and the outputted 1d profiles will include the data averaged on the patches. This is relevant in some situations, for instance in Wall-Modelled LES, where nu_t at the wall is an important quantity. Here is the repo with my code.
I would like to know if there is interest in incorporating my enhancemnts into the main code. From my side this seems like a nice small enhancemnt, which can be used to test getting through the process of contributing some code.
Kind regards, Timofey
