Default How to define support condtion of side of plate?

Dear All,

I would like to define the support condtions of side of thin palte in Mechanical Solver.

IN Global coordinate, Only Y-component is free and rotational at z-axis is free. the others are fixed.

what a kind of support type do I need to use?
Do I combinate suppor types? If I can, displacement support for moving in y-components and what else support for only roational at z-axis?

This simulation is for vibration of thin plate using FSI. But I got an warning in support conditons and got an error about force conversion.

Any ideas welcome.

Thanks in advance?
