Hi

One way to model the connection between them is to share nodes/mesh so that means they are fully welded/bonded (see shared topology in spaceclaim or multi-body parts in design modeler). Another way is to model the glue layer (3D elements) if it is important for your study. There are possible other ways also. A search on the internet will perhaps also provide some informtaion and perhaps other users that have experience with this type of structures, can provided some guidance here.

 

If you are new to ansys and in order to get started see our many courses:

All the best
