Hi foamers,

I have a question about the chimera method.

I'm trying to replicate an experiment in openfoam. In an horizontal water flume, the dam-break flow is inducing the movement of a rigid Body as shown in the image. I want to do the same thing in OpenFoam. Thus, using the chimera (overset) method, i'm not succeeding in putting the object on the bottom of the flume. Interpolation issue maybe ?

Does someone please have any ideas to solve that problem?

Thanks in advance.
