Explicit dynamics - water tank sloshing due to earthquake

figures consist of a rectangular tank consisting of water, and acceleration vs time data

I have earthquake load as acceleration vs time data. I need to give acceleration to the bottom face of the tank only. But It is not possible in explicit dynamics since it can only be given to "All Bodies" as you can see in the figure.

  1. Does anybody know how to give acceleration vs time data to the tank base in explicit dynamics? or
  2. Since providing displacement to the tank bottom face in explicit dynamics is possible, (for acceleration only "all bodies" is possible) does anyone can convert the acceleration vs time data, to displacement vs time data and send me or/ and if possible include the MATLAB is used send the code too? (excel is not attached as attachments are not possible here)
