Liquid Storage tank
i have to do analysis on liquid storage tank using ANSYS. can u suggest any tutorial or write steps on modelling the tank

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.

Try the following:

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