input interior boundary force in structural mechanics

I want to extracting reaction force on interior boundary and input it in the same boundary as an external force to let comsol to imitate bounded contact type in ansys.
My model is simple, just a 2m*1m* 1m concrete lying on the middle of a 3m*1m*0.2m steel with stress on all external boundaries of the concrete , I can sliceplot z level 0.01 to get the reaction force on the flat interior boundary, and export it as a txt file with coordinate form.Then I import the txt file into function, and start to update the model. However, the model failed in mesh initialization. Does anybody know how to successfully import a function?
