We present numerical simulations of a model of coupling between a inviscid compressible fluid and a pointwise particle. The particle is seen as a moving interface, through which interface conditions are prescribed. Key points are to impose those conditions at the numerical level, and to deal with the coupling between an ordinary and a partial differential equations.
