Water Pressure Distribution

I am analyzing a Vertical Solid Plate under water;

The height of the plate is 14 ft, Length 56 ft

The Maximum water head is 80 ft.

I can calculate the pressure, stress and deflection mathematically, however since the force distribution is trapezoidal, I was wonder if any could help me on how to apply this force in SolidWorks simulation, so that I can analyze it.
