Hi Yuvaraj,

Normal force is the support force exerted upon an object that is in contact with another stable object. If a person leans against a wall, the wall pushes horizontally on the person, which is the normal force, And the resultant force acting in normal direction is Resultant Normal Force. Please remember that normal forces are always directed perpendicular to the surface.

Similarly for FX-X and FNX,force acting X direction and normal force in X direction, if anything exist.

 

I recommend you to go through http://www.altairuniversity.com/visualization-2/post-processing-intro/ which gives many aspects on post processing.
