I am new to simulation How would I simulate moving a plate at a certain speed

I am new to simulation so forgive me if I ask a very basic question.

I have aluminum plate modeled and I have simulated it with gravity using four supports under the corners. Now I want to simulate what happens to the plate if I move it against gravity at a certain speed - let's say 20" over 1 second. What I want to learn are the safety factors, weak areas in the plate and displacement.


In general terms what kind of simulation would I use for this?
