Hello all,

After running sHM I'd like to impose a certain translation and/or rotation on a patch inside the domain.

There are some options in OF with solvers; but they require a simulation to be run. Because I already know the motion beforehand I'd like to impose this by deforming the mesh.

Are there any suggestions on how to achieve this?
