Default Mesh movement to simulate vibration/oscillation of a flat plate

Thangam is on a distinguished road

I have used the oscillatingFixedValue bc to simulate a vibrating wall (with known frequency and amplitude) with some success. However now I dont want to use wall velocities any more and interested in moving the mesh to simulate the same. The case is a simple 3D box where I want the bottom face/plate of the box to vibrate with fixed frequency and amplitude. Any ideas/ tuts similar to the case? do i use slidinginterface? 6DoF?
