I am trying to move the airfoil in a sinusoidal motion, say +/- 20 deg.
Can anyone suggest me how to do it? Thanks in advance

Write a field function which defines the motion of the airfoil (following a cosine function). You can set this field function in the motion you're using.
We do three types of jobs here:
You may choose any two!
