How can we make a rocking motion simulation?

A slender body is placed on a ground. The ground starts shaking like in earthquake. So the body starts rocking as well. How can we make the simulation?

Hello,

you can create a static cuboid, that is respondable. Then you can programmatically change its position, in order to emulate an earthquake. You will however have to do that in each single simulation step, by for instance reading a table of positions and reproducing it.

Cheers
