Wing Structural Simulation - fixed geometry?

Hi guys!

 

I'm trying to run a study on a wing structure in flight.  I have applied the lift generated by the wing acting up, and the weight of the aircraft acting down where the wing connects to the fuselage, however I am unsure of how to apply constraints.  I tried applying 'fixed geometry' where the wing connects to the fuselage, however this is resulting in huge deformation which I don't think would occur, as rather than the wing bending as it does in the simulation, the aircraft would lift up. 

 

Could anyone offer some pointers on how to set up such a simulation?

 

Thanks!
