Displacement Control Question

I suspect the answer to this is in the knowledge base which I don't yet have access to.

 

For nonlinear displacement control studies, I do not understand the relation to the specified force (If any).

 

1) Does it, in fact, never use the specified value of force? And therefore it only takes information from the force such as how it's applied and to what faces, and then uses that to acheive the displacement?

 

2) If so, I don't suppose there's a way of finding what force it used to acheive the full displacement?

 

Sorry for such questions, I just recently started learning about nonlinear studies.

 

Many thanks as always
