Default Simulating motion due to internal sloshing loads

yossarian88 is on a distinguished road

I am trying to find a solution to modelling sixdof motion of a container partially filled with liquid that should respond to the loads induced by the internal motion of the fluid, as well as the restraints and constraints. As far as I can tell from my tests so far, the sixdof solver does not include these loads, and would only include "external" aerodynamic loads in determining the motion.

What would be the best way to go about simulating this? Do I need to modify the source of sixDofSolver to somehow integrate the internal pressures, then add this as an additional force along with the restraints? Or is there a simpler way?

Thank you!
