Hi Nicola,

this is certainly possible, I have programmed a BC in which you can specify the displacement of the boundary as a time series. Converting your velocity time series to displacement should be straightforward. I use it to drive piston and flaps to generate waves:

You can find all the information and examples in:

Since the source code is available, you can modify the BC to suit your needs.
