Simulation of a moving airfoil in Fluent
 
Hi,
I want to simulate a moving 2D airfoil with unsteady motion. It's path is sinusoidal, and I need to use an O-type mesh.
The problem is that I do not really know how should I start this simulation, and which features of fluent I need to learn?
I have heard that I should use UDF. Is it right?
Please give me advices.
Cheers.

Please consider 6DOF. No problem to define sinusoidal motion of a body using UDF. There is one UDF about 6DOF in 3D at www.fluentusers.com and one tutorial - box falling into water. More tags: CG_MOTION, 6DOF,...
