The strategy is to solve the Transport equation with input volume fraction as variable. Steady state solution should work in FLUENT, this infact consumes time triple the Non VOF model. Because the solution is obtained for every 20 iterations as default to reach convergence. And Re-constructs the geometry near surface of two phases. Good luck.
