Rotational Molding Simulation

I am wondering if there is a way to simulate the way material will move in a rotational molding machine.  I have the mold designed in solidworks, but am not sure if there is a way to load a certain density material into it and rotate the mold on a major and minor axis.  For example I would like to put 160 lbs of a PE material in and rotate the major axis at 4 RPM and the minor axis at 1 RPM.  Does anybody know if this is possible and if it is, steps on how to accomplish it.  Thanks so much.
