In the current moving reference frame force, the motion of the body should be prescribed in the session, which prevents the application of Nektar++ in the fluid-structure interaction problems. In this branch, a rigid-body solver is added to support the free motion of the body.
The tranlsational motion and rotating around z axis can be set as free. The Eulerian angle is used for z-rotation. The rigid body equations are solve using NewmarkBeta scheme.
A rigid-body solver is added. This solver passes force data to the moving reference frame module and the MRF returns body's velocity and angle.
A self-propelled pitching airfoil is added.
