    Obtaining Total Strain Energy for Entire Structure

      Cosmos Works 2007 - In an effort to approximate an impact loading limit I need a total strain energy value of the entire structure in my simulation.  Contrary to what you might expect, selecting Total Strain Energy in the Strain results provides only individual element values.  Is there a way to extract the strain energy value for the entire structure?  Thanks in advance.
