How to calculate the post-buckling process (nonlinear)

I am a beginner of the nonlinear NX nastran. 

 

I would like to calculate the post-buckling process: the plate deflection grows up but the load grows down as the shown in the attached figure. I also attached the .modfem file as the example. 

 

Can anybody kown how to do it?

 

Many thanks!

In SOL601,you can choose LDC method to trace the post-buckling behavior. In SOL106  the arc-length method can be used.
