Workbench (CFX) bucket problem

Here's the problem....

I'm trying to first of all fill a simple bucket/tub CAD model in ANSYS CFX. The problem is there is no outlet as there is only 1 entrance to the bucket system. Any suggestions on how to approach this would be great.

secondly, i will be moving the simple bucket CAD model into a wooden bucket made from staves. I will be hoping to 1)fill the bucket in CFX then 2) load the top edge of the bucket in ANSYS FEA simulation and finally 3) show the gaps between the staves opening up to release the fluid inside in ANSYS CFX, all performed in the workbench environment. Any suggestions as to how to approach these problems? Is it possible to define a contact region as an outlet? (i.e. the contacts between the staves of the bucket when they are not opened?)

thanks for any help in advance
