VOF method and Marangoni flows

I was wondering if it is possible to model temperature dependent surface tension (Marangoni) effects in OpenFOAM while using the VOF method.

No, I don't OF has that capability yet. But you can always program it yourself.

Did anyone find any update on the VOF+Marangoni
Hi I am facing the same problem. So I am wondering if anyone has update on this issue.

Dear all,
I have been working on implementation tangential surface tension component to simulate marngoni flows due to temperature differences. I'm having a hard time validating my results with the existing analytical work.

Have you guys managed to figure out a way to simulate this.
Thanking you in advance.
