POLYFLOW - Evaluating the force components vs. position on a screw (MST)

How to get the profiles of forces on the screws along flow direction?

So far, there is no direct post-processor for evaluating the total force distribution (Fx, Fy, Fz) along the flow direction. However, other relevant information can certainly be provided. It is indeed possible to calculate the elastic deformation in moving parts, and also the stress components. This is illustrated in example 77 of the POLYFLOW examples manual.
Next to this, using CFX-Post or another graphic post-processor, it is possible to define a plane and to integrate a stress component on that plane, in order to know a force component.
