Hey everyone,

I am trying to simulate a sinusoidally heaving airfoil.

I manage to get a pitching airfoil using the options using "SURFACE_MOVEMENT= DEFORMING".
I can control the amplitude and frequency of the motion using "SURFACE_PITCHING_OMEGA" and "SURFACE_PITCHING_AMPL".

But for "TRANSLATION" there is only one option of constant translational velocity using "SURFACE_TRANSLATION_RATE".

How can I modify the code such that I can add a translational frequency? The "SURFACE_TRANSLATION_OMEGA" option doesn't exist.
