If you cannot work out how then do some tutorials on your solid modellign package of choice. If this is a multiphase simulation why can't you use a single inlet and use the volume fraction to define the air and water sections?

I think your idea is right with flat interface not concave? also i am new with CFX?

In this case the interface looks circular so an equation which gives the distance from the centre point should do the trick, as you use an if statement to assess whether it is inside or outside your defined arc.

You already have them, they are included in the installation. Just open Help/tutorials inside CFX or locate cfx_tutr.pdf inside the Ansys installation folder.

There's also a couple of examples on the ansys customer portal, have a look there.

Dear ghorrocks I read and run the Free surface flow over a Bump tutorial available in examples folder its a good example in free surface flow If you remember for the pict i sent in my first post you told me that I need to define a CEL expression for vof for water to evaluate the shape of interface ? the problem I do not have equation define it only I have it's distance from the bottom of pipe so how i can define the convex interface in this case? any suggestions pls?

This looks like a circle so that should not be too hard. Then you simply do a check (with step or if) whether the point is inside or outside the circle, and define the volume fraction.
