question about Heat transfer between two phases with VOF model
 
HI

I have simple question.

If i use the VOF model for two phases, are any treatement required for heat transfer between phases?

when two phases by using VOF model have different temperatures, single temperature always exist at interface witout any treatment for heat transfer. So i think heat is balanced at interface when i used VOF method for muli-phase model.
But when i generated some heat source in one phase, heat might be not transfered to another phase. So im currious some treatment is required for heat transfer at interface when vof model is used?
Please give me some concept for exact understanding the VOF model.
