Impact Test Simulation

Hello SolidWorkers,

I have a question for someone out there that has experience in simulations for Impact Testing. I have an optics window 3 inches in dia x .75 inches thick in which I need to drop a 2 lb spherical mass onto. The drop height is appox 10.5 inches high. I already know I cannot simulate this using Drop Test, or at least I have not figured out a way to do this in the Drop Test module. This is part of a Standard for this type of equipment that it must pass. I have calculated the impact force, however I would like to validate this using a simulation if possible. Any help on this would be appreciated.
