ABAQUS: Access stress of integration point of elements during calculation

Hi all,

I'm using ABAQUS and UMAT for structural simulation. I used quadratic element (CPS4) with 4 integration points (IP).

During the calculation (which calling my UMAT), at each time step, for each element, I need to calculate the average stress of these IPs and produce a state variable for these IPs from this average stress. Then, I would need to update this state variable back to these IPs in that element. But as far as I know, the ABAQUS call UMAT for every IP and calculate everything within this current IP.
