You can use an expression or a 3D interpolation function. Also if this profile has axial symmetry then it is really only 2D and much simpler to implement.

The CFX tutorials show how to do these functions. And more tutorials are available on the ANSYS customer webpage, and yet more again from your ANSYS support person.
