Question about contact modelling

Pioneer
Pioneer

I have a flat plate, let's say 100 mm x 100 mm x 2 mm thick and I have a screw (let's say M4X10) that's going through a hole in the middle.

 

I want to model the plate using 2D shell elements and leave the screw as modelled using 3D TETRA4 elements, is there a way to model the frictional contact between the screw and the plate (both static and dynamic coefficients of friction = 0.6)?

 

I don't want to model the screw's interface in the hole in the plate as a glued contact.

 

How would I execute something like this?

 

Thank you.
