srinc is on a distinguished road

I am new to openFoam. I want to compare the shear stress (wall and fluid/solid) that occurs when a rectangular tank undergoes linear oscillation (in vertical or z-direction).

I was able to do that for the case when the fluid is inside the tank using tutorial 'sloshingTank3D' under the section multiphase with little modification.

But when I need to solve for viscoelastic solid inside the tank (collagen in my case), i am not sure where/how to start. I am using openFoam ext 4.0. Any input/help is appreciated. Thanks!
