Plot contact normal force vs. displacement instead of time?

I have a Loading-Unloading displacement controlled Nonlinear dynamic 2d axisymmetric simplified simulation.

The device increases contact force between sliding surfaces as the moving component is loaded.

I would like to plot the contact force and/or stress relative to the prescribed displacement instead of time.


The result will be a Graph which actually resembles that of real life tests, like force-displacement or stress-strain curves,

so if you tell me it cant be done in Solidworks 2015 i dont believe you
