The problem is that when you derive theta to find the angular velocity you lose the constant, so when Fluent integrates the velocity (DEFINE_CG_MOTION requires the angular velocity, not the angle(t)) it loses the constant "-15", giving the symmetrical function 25*sin(2*pi*frequency*t+arcsin(3/5)). But unfortunately I want an asymmetrical function ranging from +10deg to -40deg.
What is the integration scheme used by Fluent to get the angle theta knowing the angular velocity???

I am experiencing some problems because I imply a constant angular velocity in steps but the angle changes after each cycle because of rounding off errors!!!

It has no constants so that, when I derive it to find the omega[t] and then Fluent integrates it,Fluent gets back the original theta[t]. I used Matlab "Curve fitting toolbox" to find this function by interpolation of many points.
Anyway thank you for your help!
Hye, please help me!!

I am learning how to write a UDF for a flapping door, angle is from +50 to -10 degrees, please give me some hints.
