We consider a Dice model with Dirac cones intersected by a topologically flat band at the charge neutrality point and analyze the inelastic scattering of massless pseudospin-1 particles on a circular, gate-defined, oscillating barrier. Focusing on the resonant scattering regime at small energy of the incident wave, we calculate the reflection and transmission coefficients and derive explicit expressions for the time-dependent particle probability, current density and scattering efficiency within (Floquet) Dirac-Weyl theory, both in the near-field and the far-field. We discuss the importance of sideband scattering and Fano resonances in the quantum limit. When resonance conditions are fulfilled, the particle is temporarily trapped in vortices located close to edge of the quantum dot before it gets resubmitted with strong angular dependence. Interestingly even periodically alternating forward and backward radiation may occur. We also demonstrate the revival of resonant scattering related to specific fusiform boundary trapping profiles.
