Simulating stress concentrations for a hole in a flat plate (constraints)

Hi all, Have a fairly simple model of a rectangular plate with a few different holes in the middle. I want to show the distribution of stresses and strain along the plate.

Now, I have my simulation setup with one fixed face at the bottom and a 1kN force on the other face. This won't give me satisfying results...

 

Is it possible to have two forces, ( equal length in the reverse direction) on both faces, instead of fixing one?

Also, ideally I wish to put a certain amount of deformation instead of the force. How can this be achieved?

Thanks for the suggestions!
