What are you trying to model? Sloshing in the tank? Vaporization of the liquid? Is it multiphase? A few more details will help with the recommendations.

If you're modeling sloshing with a free surface, use the VOF model. See the following for a tutorial: http://mech.sharif.edu/~nematimehr/f...uent/tut17.pdf

Hmmm...it was a PDF file (adobe acrobat).

Try the following:

If that one doesn't work, try google. There are plenty of VOF tutorials out there.
