You can hand calculate the gradient fluid pressure or simulate it in FlowWorks. Then import the flow simulation results into the COSMOS simulation (Check the attached picture). There may not be the need to simulate the fluid in the can (depends what your goals are).
Hope this helps

With COSMOSWorks, you can put the sum of two pressure components on the walls: hydrostatic (gradient) pressure and the added pressure from the manufacturer using the equation component in the Pressure dialog box.
Is it able simulate the non-linear deep drawing process of the can manufacture leaving a residual stress pattern and then subsequently restart an analysis of the can under internal pressure while drop testing? Is it able to simulate the fracture failure (cracking) of the can upon impact with the floor?
I have just started using Geostar, but have done these types of analyses before.
Not sure yet of the capabilities.
100% possible even in Cw 2005, but hydrostatic liquid pressure is nothing compare gass pressure in can.
non-linear deep drawing process is not Cosmos strong point.
Use on this step technlogical CAE like Deform2D (3D), Qform, Superforge
Simulia Abaqus - more complicated ...
or tools with terrible GUI like LS-Dyna or Marc
