Hello!,

I suggest to create a GLOBAL finite element model meshing with 1-D beam CBEAM elements, this way you will have a result in the form of nodal displacements & element stresses. Next if you need a more detailed answer, you can isolate the location and mesh with 3-D Solid elements and use rigid RBE2 "spider-like" elements to pass from BEAM to SOLID in the interface areas.

Best regards,
Blas.
