modeling connection beam + shell connection

Dear Femap member,

 

I need to create connection between shell and beam element, as reported in the attached figure.

 

mesh beam + shell.pngbeam + shell

 

I can use RBE2 to connect these nodes, but I don't know how can I correctly model the deformation and stress distribution in the inteface.

What degree of freedom I must activate/deactivate?

 

Best regards

Stefano
