Hi foamers.

Is there anyway to use unsteady (or time dependent) omega in '/constant/MRFZones' for Moving reference frame ?
for example,

omega = sin(2*pi*f*t)

omega : anglular velocity, f : frequency, t : time

Any tip will be more than welcome.



OR, Can anyone suggest which motion option I need to use for 'oscillating (pitching) airfoil'??
