Doing an Abaqus FEA course and unsure what the proffesor is asking of us?

(OP)
I apply apply a load of -1500N in the vertical direction to the RP_LOAD_Point, and have to do the following:

"Extract from the ODB field output via “Create xy-data” the force/time and
displacement/time curve of the RP_Load_Point. Generate a force/displacement plot out of these curves. What does the plot tell you?" - What does he mean by force curve of the RP_Load_Point?

"Which plies have failed and what kind of failure is predicted?"
We are working with Tsai-Wu and Hashin failure - does anyone know how I can check which plies have failed? I can check the results for each ply, but not sure how to know if any have failed? Does it fail if the value is over 1?



Test setup:

FEA model:

Ply stack plot:
