How to simulate slow speed collisions

I'm looking to run a basic motion study in solidworks 2011. It involves extending a hydraulic cylinder shaft out towards a piece of pipe. On the end of the shaft is a device that needs to contact the pipe in order to make it collapse around the pipe. I can't find any useful vides to describe how to simulate the collision itself. I tried interefence detection and the contact option in the motion study but no results. I assume i'm just setting it up incorrectly as I used one of the two options in the past to achieve the same results.

Any help or direction would be greatly appreicated.
