When I did an analysis for 2 cases: solid element and shell element in Workbench, I saw that the von Mises in 2 cases are much different
235 Mpa and 68 Mpa respectively.
Figure 1: Solid element, VM stress 235 Mpa
Figure 2: Shell element, von Mises stress 68 Mpa
Could anyone take a look and send me any explanation?

Could anyone see and give me any suggestions?

You have applied different loads to the two models.
On the Solid Model, you have a bearing load, which takes the force and applies it to the nodes only on the side of the face that a pin in the hole would push on, and with the force scaled as a cosine function with 1 on the centerline ramping down to 0 at the 90 degree point of the face.
On the Shell Model, you have a force load, which takes the force and divides it equally to all nodes around the circle.
Try putting a force load on the solid model and it will be closer. However, the bearing load is a more realistic load for your case.

Thanks for your suggestion,
I try to use bearing load in shell element model but cannot.
Could you suggest me to apply bearing in this case?
Thanks in advance
