Abstract: A method is proposed for the modelling of fluid-solid interaction in applications where fluid forces dominate. Data are transferred between two stand-alone codes: a dedicated computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code capable of free surface modelling via the volume of fluid (VOF) approach and a physics engine code capable of predicting the movement of objects based on inputs of forces and moments. The method is weakly coupled, but has the advantage of accommodating a large number of independent objects which are allowed to touch or even overlap.
