Default Foam Extend 4-1: Immersed Boundary plus Compressible flow

mfrz is on a distinguished road
Dear all,

I am working on a weak coupling between an inHouse FEM solver (dedicated to metal forming) and foam-extend-4-1(-0). I would like to utilize the IB method in order to move the interface between oil and metal. My oils are compressible and thus I need a compressible solver. Does anyone has experience with implementing the IB method in compressible openFOAM/foam-extend solvers and knows whether or not some are suitable and some aren't? I need a transient, compressible, laminar flow solver.

I attached two images with sketches of what I am roughly doing. I know it does not look like something which is very fluid-dynamic but the first test (image 1) is essentially the validation for compressibility and the second one the actual case with the flow.

Thank you for your help in advance!
