Flapping Plate/wing In Ansys WB 14.0

  1. Feb 15, 2012 #1
    Hello All,
    I want to implement a flapping motion to an Aluminium plate in transient ansys structural in WB environment.
    I am using remote displacement through a remote point, on to one side face of the plate.
    The flapping motion is sinusoidal.
    But after solving it, the plate / wing does not move sinusoidally.
    Is there any solver setting or definition. There should not be any mode of vibration as the frequency is only 3 Hz.

    I would really appreciate any help / input to this problem.
    Many thanks
