Manipulation of every single mesh node inside the domain (OpenFoam)

I am new to OpenFoam and I would like to simulate an unsteady model that requires moving boundary/mesh motion analysis.
However, the motion of the mesh nodes are already prescribed (known) as a function of time. so I do not need to use any dynamic mesh solver to calculate the position of each node.
Is it possible in OpenFoam to manipulate the position of each mesh node inside the domain as a function of time?
I appreciate if someone would help me with this issue.

You can do something like this to manipulate the mesh point locations as you like. You will need to incorporate this CV motion into your solver though relative/abs flux treatments.
Uniform mesh point manipulation can be quite easy:
vectorField delCentroid(mesh.points().size(), deltaC); vectorField newPoints = mesh.points() + delCentroid; mesh.movePoints(newPoints);
I hope that helps you out a bit.
