You may use CEL's step function such that step((z-0.5[m])/1[m]) assuming your gravity parallel to z and bed heigth (from z=0) of 0.5 m. Hope this helps

 November 27, 2007, 04:03 Re: gas solid fluidizd bed with cfx #3 mohamad Guest   Posts: n/a hi Ribeiro I am not familiar with cel expression very much.when i make a new expression as "step((z-0.5[m])/1[m])"how can i use it in my simulation. thank you

 November 27, 2007, 08:24 Re: gas solid fluidizd bed with cfx #4 Ribeiro Guest   Posts: n/a You gonna give this expression a name, right? So you can write it in any space through out the setup where the "root of alpha" buttom is present. For this particular case you should go in Global Initialization (or in Domain tab called Initialization), change the option of solid volume fraction to 'Automatic with Value'. Then click on "root of alpha" buttom and write the name of CEL expression. It is pretty easy. Good luck.
