Hi Friends,

I am running Star CCM and I am very new to it.
Urgently need to figure out how to simulate a birds wing undergoing flapping (up and down translation) and pitching (rotation about an axis) with free stream mach = 0.2.

I did the tutorial on airfoil overset mesh, but this is not quite what I need.
From what I understand this tutorial allows you to set a specific fixed angle of attack (AOA).

In my case I want the AOA to vary with a certain fixed frequency.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
