Can SW simulate volume filling of a cylinder?

Is there a way of using the flow simulation tools within SolidWorks to fill an empty cylinder with a specified flow rate and as an output, get the time for the cylinder to be filled fully? This would all be done on a static cylinder in its in-stroke, all the is required is the time to find how long it takes for the cylinder in that position to fill.

 

I understand that I can use hand calculations to solve this (simply calculating the volume and comparing against flow rate) but I am trying to show this as a simulation also.
