Hi all, i'm having problems creating a fluctuating pressure inlet through a pipe.
I need to create a sine wave of around 1000 Hz with an amplitude of 10 Pa and a mean pressure of 100 Pa.

This is what i have done below in Matlab:

t=0:0.01:10;
Pmean=100;
Pamplitude=10;
f=1000;
w=2*3.14*f;

Ptime=Pmean+Pamplitude*sin(w*t);

How on earth do i transfer this into a field function? Is a field function the right way to go about this?

Thanks in advance!

Yes a field function is the right way.
The definition of your field function should be something like the following:

100+10*sin(2*3.14*1000*$Time)

That appears to work perfectly, thanks a lot!
