Time history of reaction force available in SW?

Hi Experts,


I got this specific question: I used nonlinear static SW simulation to simulate a part compressing another part with prescribed displacement. I am hopping to get the force, required force, for compression. Right now, I can list the reaction force specific to a time step and to a face. Can I get a force vs. time curve for a component? This is a very typical situation like a forging process - you want to deform the part in this matter and need to estimate the power needed to do so. This may be a simple questio, but couldn't find it myself


Thanks in advance,
