Translation of ground plane with provided mesh
Dear all,

I have been provided with a structured hex H-mesh for a high-downforce aerofoil placed in proximity to the ground (which is of course the lower edge of the mesh domain). I am attempting to investigate the effect of altering the vertical distance between the aerofoil and the ground.

My question is; using ICEM, which approach can be used to easily translate the aerofoil vertically relative to the ground plane?

Thank you for reading and I look forward to any response. Apologies if any details have been omitted, please ask if you need any further information.
