Four snapshots of the N-body simulation of an NGC 922-like TRG formation. Left panels: focusing on the tidal ring formation within the main galactic system (cyan). Right panel: putting the focus on the intruder evolution (yellow) and on the formation of tidal shells. The zero points of the time progression labelled in the left panels are arbitrary and do not correspond to the initial conditions of the simulation.
