An ADI scheme is suggested to simulate the Marangoni convection controlling with emphasis on investigating application of the technique numerically. Numerical experiments conducted in the present paper turn out both successful and efficient. Hence, ADI scheme is expected to be extended to the study of other convection processes related to material manufacturing.
