As you mentioned before in my other thread I have changed my approach to using the Menetrey-Willams material model for my concrete beam. In this case in particular I have somewhat being able to solve my support problem by basically assigning a very rigid material to the plates and only fixing one edge, so as to allow rotation there. I have chosen bonded, as you mentioned and that also helped with converge issues.
Thanks for the help
