Is is possible to enable temperature change of a rigid body in my simulation?

I created an SPH + rigid body simulation where I would like to analyze how contact between the two bodies affects the temperature of the rigid body. So far the SPH particles are the only one shown to vary in temperature during contact. Without an EOS, the rigid body keeps a constant temperature throughout my sim. I tried to use the same EOS I had for SPH but it resulted in the following error.
