Displaying tensile stresses only

I'm trying to simulate a concrete product in CWorks.

Because concrete fails at lower values in compression than in tension, I'm looking to find a way of graphically showing only the tensile stresses within the product.

Does anyone know whether there is a way of doing this?

(Btw - I'm aware that most of the assumptions used are not valid for concrete, but we have other products with known performance to compare results against, which gives us a useful first evaluation.)
