Dear Kimai,

You have to be more specific. There are normal stress components which COMSOL outputs under “Stress”. There is also the stress normal to a surface which you can get as the dot product of the surface normal vector and the surface tractions. Both are also output by COMSOL and accessible for a surface plot.
