Hi Experts,

For VOF problem in Ansys Fluent, after the position of the linear interface is calculated by the Geometric Reconstruction Scheme, how can I access the area and normal of the interface.

Additionally, I wonder whether the Geometric Reconstruction Scheme is used to calculate the position of the interface at initialization when UDF is used to specify the volume-of-fluid in each cell.
