In the neutrino physics the direct measurement of the cosmogenic neutrino at energy of 10^15 − 1018 eV is still a challenging item. The most resent analysis of IceCube data results in an energy spectrum between 10^13 and 10^16 eV. We present the preliminary results of detailed Monte Carlo simulation of tau-induced air shower. In this study we consider the higher tau decay branching ratio (π−π0) at different energies (10^16 − 10^18 eV) generated by CORSIKA to evaluate the detection efficiency of the TAU-shoWER (TAUWER) array. It is designed as a future experiment for Ultra High Energetic tau-neutrino (UHE ντ ) astronomy to use Earth neutrino skimming strategy. The parameters (the distance from array plane to the emerging point and the neutrino energy) to optimize the detection efficiency and the trigger design for the TAUWER array setup are presented.
