Is there a way to represent the [added mass](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Added_mass) and fluid inertial forces for underwater vehicles in gazebo?
I'd like to consider an added mass on my vehicle like a 6x6 matrix, to be taken in account altogether with the vehicle inertial ([m*eye(3x3), zeros(3x3); zeros(3x3), I]).
Regards

this is implemented for example in [uuv_simulator](https://github.com/uuvsimulator/uuv_simulator).
Best,
