*create your U as edges
*create your pipe section (surface)
*place one extremity of your edges-chain at center from your surface
*create the volumes by sweeping your surface with edges (Volume/sweep surface)

max thanks for your effort. I failed to sweep the faces into volume, I chose face 1 & 3 and select path as edge I chose edge 12 then after i press apply this error appear to me:

ERRor: The chain to be swept is parallel to the path

what i can do then? is my selecting of faces wrong?

As you saw there is only one generatrice (line linking the 2 disks)
It will crash the mesh.
So you can create a second generatrice.
> edge split "edge.13" percentarclength 0.5 connected
> edge split "edge.10" percentarclength 0.5 connected
it will split the circle into 2 semi-circles, with a vertex in the middle
Then split the surface with the 2 vertex.
>face split "face.2" vertices "vertex.13" "vertex.14"
Then you can go and mesh your volume (spacing 5), gambit will automatically select cooper scheme
