Dear all;

I want to know in order to simulate pitch and plunge motion, do we have to divide numerical domain into two subdomains and rotate or translate the near walls subdomain and fix the outer one, or no, rigid motion of the entire domain will yield in true aerodynamic coefficients?

According to "SU2_AIAA_ASM 2013", page 27, "for pitching and plunging, rigid motion of the entire domain is true. Am I right or misunderstand?

Thanks a lot.
