Changing DOF of wigleyHull & 2 other questions

I'm trying to simulate a HSC's(High Speed Craft) motion with more that 1 degree of freedom by modifying the wigleyHull tutorial in OpenFoam 2.1.1, but I don't know how can I control the DOF of the problem.

I have 3 questions:

1- How to define DOF in the problem?

2- Does OpenFoam support the body-attached mesh technique to solve the transient motion of crafts with low computational cost?

3- Is LTSInterFoam a good choice for simulating transient flows with two-fluid interface, or it is just a good option for steady simulation of such flows?

Thanks in advance guys,

Hello Foamers,

Can anybody help me on this? :(
