Simulation of Tub Bode outward

I am trying to do a simple simulation with a force on a tub to see how much it would bode or deflect outward. The tub only has a material thickness of .010" and I am trying to apply a 3lb force directly downwards. My question is it is possible to apply a downward force and the tub deflects outward(see pic 2). ive tried using force or pressure but i keep getting a mesh error. I have attached an iges file incase some of you dont have sw2012. I have simplified this model as much as i can, ive taken out all the strengthening ribs and snap features and still cannot get a result. The material is plastic/PET. Any help would be appreciated.
