Trying to formed a bolted connection between a shell and a solid. The stresses aren't important in the shell model, it is only present as a type of compression only boundary surface for the solid element. I have rigid body motion in my model using RBE2's on washer surfaces and a beam element connecting.
I created a smaller sample model to demonstrate my issue. Is there something I am doing wrong, or is it inherently impossible to connect shells and solids in this matter? If so is the model attached "solid bolt surface" with a small solid element glued into the shell an appropriate work around (this doesn't work either as the solid element can't transfer rotation) to not have to solid mesh the entire boundary surface, which would result in roughly an additional 1 million nodes.

Among the challenges in the design flow has been aligning the metrics for design-for-test and for functional safety. This paper describes using logic built-in-self-test as both a functional safety mechanism and as a part of in-system testing, which allows for alignment of metrics required for safety certifications.
