Does anybody know what kind of reconstruction technique interFoam (VOF) uses in order to reconstruct and create fluid interface? any reference?

OpenFOAM does not reconstruct the free surface, it does only track the VOF indicator function using an advection-diffusion equation. The fluid interface is compressed artificially, although it gets smeared over several cells.
You can find more information in this forum, just search VOF and interFoam.

It doesn't do any reconstruction at all. References commonly cited are the PhD thesis of Henrik Rusche or Edin Berberovic.
