Simulate a climb robot on a steel bridge using magnetic force

Is it possible to simulate the above thing using Gazebo? My robot is a robot with 2 wheels (like in the figure) that stick to the surface of a bridge using magnets. My idea is to add two custom forces on the two wheels but how to adjust/calculate the direction of the forces to be perpendicular to the bridge surface to simulate the magnetic forces?
