Calculating opening pressure of Diaphragm valve

Hi there
I need to calculate the opening pressure of a diaphragm valve we are designing.
Which of the simulation options will be the best at calculating this "force" needed to open or crack the seal of the valve to vent air ? We will be trying and comparing different design specs to get the most effective solution but need to accurately measure this. We are using Solidworks.
