Measuring out-of-plane displacement in plane stress

I am modelling some contact considering a 2D plane stress situation. I would like to know how to measure the quantity of material which moves out of the XY plane. The variable comp1.w (which is displacement in Z direction) returns 0 value. Is this the correct variable? Because I am sure there should be some out-of-plane displacement.
Thank you in advance.
