Floating Objects
I need to model a person floating in a certain type of flow. Is it possible to add shapes other than "particles" to a simulation so that they flow with the fluid? I have tried just adding a cylinder within the initial fluid region, but it just stays stationary during the simulation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Riley,
You can use the Moving Objects Model GMO with coupled motion if you want to simulate an object which is moving due to fluid. For the coupled motion you need to define the density of the moving object.
