Hey guys,
I am working on a simulation using the sedfoam_rbgh solver. The simulation consists of a sediment bed and water. I am trying to simulate an object falling through the water onto the sediment bed. The object that I would like to simulate has different properties to the sediment and the water.

My question: How can I implement the properties of this other solid which is not one of the two phases in the simulation?

Thanks in advance,

May be asking this question directly to sedFoam maintainers may help, who are the most familiar with the topic:

This is their repo:

This is the issue tracker:

Or better asking in the community contributors page:

Hope you find the answer.
