I need to know is UpH in bump tutorial represents the free surface height at inlet while DownH is the free surface level at outlet? I am really confused about it may somebody answer me please?

Yes, that is what tutorial states. UpH is for inlet and DownH is for outlet.

Thanks Danial for the answer. In my case the lower phase is flows with a velocity differ from the upper phase velocity. In bump tutorial they only use single velocity at inlet I want to set the two velocities at inlet together for both phases. As I know from the guys on the forum this is possible unless the two phases never mixed and I can still use homogeneous model . Someone said that If the free surface is at z=10 mm, then for z<10 mm I need to define velocity=0.5 [m/s], and where z>10 mm I need define velocity=1[m/s]? I aware that I need use a CEL expression for it but I am a beginner with CFX may you please type how the CEL expression for this case become? Knowing that I read the examples mentioned about CEL expression at the documentation but never find similar one to my case?

Thanks a lot
Mariam

it would be like this;if you have one
for inlet and for both velocities :
if(z>=10[m/s],if(z<=0.5[m/s],1[m/s],0.5[m/s],0[m/s])

it should work, i think so. try it and if it does not ,post it here and you can get suggestions from anyone.

HI Danial I not understood something in your last expression? From where you bring 0 [m/s] velocity? I never set like this velocity at my last post? furthermore I think there is error in your expression it must be as follows as I think:
if(z>=10 mm,if(z<=10 mm,1[m/s],0.5[m/s])

is it right?

another thing how can I define this expression in my simulations for the velocity at inlet? in Bump tutorial they give each expression a known symbol (like UpH,DownPre,.......etc) should I give symbol for this expression too?

yes , u will hv to give name like " V "for velocity while creating expressions, earlier expressions must have an error because, units will be written such as; [m s^-1] rather [m/s].
Zero velocity means if your fluids have velocities as u defined, they will take the value of your velocity proposed (1 or 0.5]. Otherwise, if they dont fall in those ranges, velocity will be considered zero.
Insert > expressions > [name wteva u like]

if(z>=10[mm],if(z<=0.5[mm],1[m s^-1],0.5[m s^-1]),0[m s^-1])

Depending on the expression you mentioned I type the following statement:

if(y>0.01 [m],if(y<=0.01 [m],12.5 [m s^-1],0.0066 [m s^-1]),0 [m s^-1])

where y vertical distance
0.01 m is the free surface level

when I try test the expression before run in cfx-pre it gives zero velocity everywhere along y so what the problem? may somebody tell me? is the expression incorrect?
