Hello Suraj,

You can have a look at *MAT_280 (*MAT_GLASS). Here is an example:

You will find more information on *MAT_280 in the user manual volume  II and here:

Another approach would be to use peri-dynamics:

You will find some example models and presentations here:

You can search for  "peridynamics" on dynalook.com for more papers.

 

Let me know how it goes.
