Force wave


Hope that someone could help me with solution for idea.

Lets say I have plane mesh, triangulated object. I would like to make my mesh make a circular wave.
I imagine that it would be some force field influencing the mesh but seems that I need that force in form of circle which i could expand.
Maybe there’s some other technique alowing to make same result. Maybe someone had experience alike?
Thank You!

How about the Wave modifier?
