How to obtain ‘Force value’ as ‘output’ ?

      I am currently doing a project where I insert a zinc body in a copper casing while deforming it. There is frictional contact between them, I gave displacement as Input, I got the animation where it deforms the copper casing but I wish to obtain how much force is required to push zinc body inside copper casing in terms of graph. I tried "Force Convergence:" in output but it's not giving me required results. Can anyone please help ? Following is the animation which I obtained.

      Right click on the Solution branch. Insert a Probe > Reaction Force > select the Displacement boundary condition. That will create a graph of the Insertion Force vs Time.  If the insertion distance is 5 mm, you can make the End Time 5 seconds, then the graph can be interpreted to be Force vs Displacement.
