I would like to simulate the force it takes to dip a plate into a liquid with high viscosity. This force should rise when the plate gets deeper into the liquid and have its maximum at the bottom. Therefor I have created a simple container which is open at the topside and a plate. Now I am in the process of generating a mesh, but because of the lack of experience I am not sure which kind of Mesh I should use for each part (hex-dominant automatic, hex-dominant parametric, tet-dominant).
Is it necessary to create a CAD model of the liquid too?
Is such a simulation possible with Simscale?
I have tried to find a similar project in the public files but could not find any so far.
I would really appreciate it if you could provide me some help and guide me through the necessary steps!
