I'm setting up a multiphase VoF Fluent case with temperature-dependent surface tension. Little surprising my first attempt has not been entirely successful, so I'd like to check if I'm getting the correct surface tension values. However, I can't find an option to plot the surface tension values in the domain (neither in fluent directly, nor via calculation activities -> export). Can anyone help me out here?

vig is on a distinguished road
You could write a udf for defining surface tension property.
Store the value in the udm and then post-process it.
