There are several theoretical models for initial conditions, which intend to describe the matter created in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions. In this work, we will perform hydrodynamics computations using different initial conditions, as Wood-Saxon, Glauber, Mckln, Nexus and Gubser [1], and calculate several observables, as for instance, anisotropic flows $v_n$ [2], eccentricities $\varepsilon_n$, symmetric cumulants $SC(n,m)$ [3], event-plane correlations, and others quantities, in order to understand the hydrodynamics response to different initials geometry in heavy-ion collisions.
