Hello folks,

I have extended the Fluid-Solid Interaction toolkit[Tuković at al] of foam-extend 3.1 to support nonNewtonian fluids. The implementation is verified and is correct. Now, I would like to simulate an impact using it. A hemispherical impactor would fall impacting on a brick made of elastic material with non-Newtonian fluid confined inside of it.
The impactor is made of steel and is would be modeled basically as a rigid body.
How could I simulate the impact between a rigid body and the already implemented elastic material? Does anyone has a guideline? Or just a starting point?

The concept:
