juandeigo is on a distinguished road

I'm running an open channel simulation with overInterDymFoam and Rigid body Dynamics.

Everything is working fine but I'd like to temporarily constraint the x translation of the hull during the first seconds of the simulation.

I've tried different things as manually modifying the dynamicMeshDict file to add a Px joint or adding springs and playing with their parameters, but no one seems to work.

Any ideas on how to do this?
