Default Transient analysis of particle flow with Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI)

Julian K. is on a distinguished road

I would like to simulate the following scenario:

- flow over an oscillator (beam) -> Fluid-Structure-Interaction (FSI)
- particle tracking during oscillation of the beam
- capture (immobilization) when particle touches the beam's surface

I know, that particles can be introduced and tracked in post-processing. However, my scenario requires a simultaneous simulation of flow and particle flow. Furthermore, the particles should be captured and counted when they hit the beam's surface.

Would it be possible to simulate this scenario with OpenFOAM?

Thank you!
