average deformation history of all the nodes on a defined surface – viscoelastic model


      Attached is a heterogeneous model (elements come with different mechanical properties). I applied a constant stress on the rear surface, and fixed the front surface in displacement. The top, bottom, left, and right surfaces were not subjected to any constraints. Prony was used to define the input viscoelastic properties. The model was running well. In the post-processing, I want to read the averaged x-deformation history of all the nodes on the rear surface. Anybody knows how in ANSYS WORKBENCH? I appreciate all the replies in advance.
