Simulating a Peristaltic Pump

Hi! I´m trying to simulate a peristaltic pump, but I can´t make the rollers interact with the tubing, neither in the flow simulation nor in the motion analysis. Does somebody knows if its possible to simulate the movement of the liquid in the tube due to the pressure created by the contact of the tube with the rollers moving? Since the movement is not in direct contact with the fluid I can't make it flow. I´ve change the tubing material to a flexible one so it can deformate with the roller, but this doesn't help

 

Thank you
