how is it possible to determine the average stress over a area/plane (e.g. yellow/black line in image below) in simulation results? Is that possible with solidworks?

Background: in this study different joints are researched. The average shear in the plane yellow/plane or the average tensile stress in the neck are important for the design evaluation.

Ps.: I hope that the right technical terms for this case were used.


Also helpful is to:

break = cut the model using one of the tools in solidworks like split
