Hi all.
I want to move a cylinder in a fluid domain in a harmonic way i.e: z=a*sin(wt).
Can anyone help me how to do that please?

Many thanks

Ever thought about using the morpher? There is a very good example for your problem in the morphing tutorial, it shows exactly how to set up a time-dependend morphing boundary condition.
Be aware, morphing is computationally intensive. I recommend to use version 6.02 which is much faster in morphing than the older ones.
