Default profile of liquid interface in dam break case!

vivek070176 is on a distinguished road

In the dam break case, I changed the location of water column and placed it at the top and, at the bottom air is placed as shown in the attachment.

The interface between the water and air is straight at time t=0 as described in the setFields dictionary by having the boxtocell '' box (0 0.292 -1) (0.584 0.584 1)''

But i wanted to change the shape of the interface at t=0 to something like a function of this form y=0.292 + 0.005cos(2x) where x is the horizontal distance from the centre of the whole geometry.

Any suggestions please.
