I am a new learner of Fluent. I simulated two phase flow with air and water (split inlet). How can I visualize the two phases better apart from looking at the contours of the volume fraction. I have attached pics from my simulation below. I do not want to increase the mesh density as it increases my computation time.

If you just visualize one contour surface for VOF-variabel = 0.5 you will get the interface.

also you can define a new iso-surface for vof = 0.5. You can then, for example, make a contour plot of the z-coordinate on this surface
