I think you refer to use a body-ground joint in each lug. So for this case Should I use the following type of joint?

System model is just a general model whitout fillets, and detailed models area specfic models of each type of lug with fillets. Is this correct?

What about consider a plastic limit strain? Fox example it could be consider establich a limit of 5% to the limit plastic strain. So Should I check Equivalent Plastic Strain or Equivalent Total Strain, which one? And then ensure that this is less than 5% or 0.05. Could it be reasonable?
