Coupling iRIC to DEM software to simulate floating bodies

Hi!

I got a in-house software that’s very good at handling rigid body interactions and I got access to the full source code, now I’m looking for some way to implement or couple hydrodynamics to it, specifically I need a two way interaction between river flow and floating rigid bodies.

For the rigid bodies simulation I need a 2D vector field for flow velocities and the depth at each point.
For the hydrodynamics I need some way to check how the rigid bodies change the flow.

I noticed that there’s a fair bit of work being done with iRIC on floating debris so I figured it might be a good framework for what I’m doing. Does it seem like something that would be possible to do by utilizing a (or writing a new) iRIC solver?

Best Regards
Tim
