I am sure the problem has been handled by many researchers. I have searched through the discussion in this forum, and I think I understand the velocity and pressure boundary conditions on left and right edge. But could anyone point out the correct boundary conditions (both velocity and pressure) on the free stream? Thanks in advance.

The traction is from the pressure and surface tension. For position equation (mesh generation equation), in the normal direction, impose velocity zero; in the tangential direction, impose node distributions you want.

On a liquid free surface, t n : T = 0, n n : T = -P + k sigma. where t is unit tangent vector, P is the pressure, k is the first curvature, sigma is the surface tension.
