How to plot Fracture toughness vs Crack length in Abaqus for Delamination problem

I've modelled a DCB specimen and applied Boundary conditions and load... I followed the same procedures given in abaqus documentation... As expected the crack initiates and propagates along the interface... I can get the Resultant force vs displacement plot from the analysis.. But i dont know how to plot the fracture toughness vs crack length plot in ABAQUS..

Please help me... Your suggestion would really help me a lot..

Single fiber pull out modelling

I want to model a fiber rod pull out process in Abaqus. The fiber is a composite rod which is to be debonded first from the surrounding laminate and need to be sliding along the interface of the rod/laminate.

Modelling:

i created an axisymmetric model of the rod being surrounded by the laminate. i got the residual stress due to curing process. This residual stress is compressive at the interface which is responsible for resisting the pull out force applied at first.

loading:

Axial pull is applied at one end of the rod. and the other end being fixed.
