Default OpenFOAM : domain motion implementation with sixDoFRigidBodyMotionSolver class

doctorWho is on a distinguished road

I am trying to implement domain motion (not morphing mesh) with sixDoFRigidBodyMotion class.

What I have done is to set scale_ variable to 1 in sixDoFRigidBodyMotionSolver constructor as follows:

        scale_.primitiveFieldRef() = scalar(1);

        const pointMesh& pMesh = pointMesh::New(mesh);
Then, the result by pimpleDyMFoam shows the internal mesh moving with rigid body except boundary patches.
I guess that in order to make domain with boundary patch move with rigid body, something should be done in the boundary patch in solve member function but I have no idea.
