I am having two bodies shell and solid ( not possible to midsurfacing so kept it as solid) which are connected by screw joint , can I simulate this by using fixed joint between a hole edge of shell and hole edge of solid
What is the correct way to simulate these kind of bodies, or shall I imprint or project certain part of screw on both bodies and use MPC bonded contact?

Can you share some inline images of your model for a better understanding of your model? Also, how are you going to model the screw?

here is a dummy model, plate on the left side is midsurface and on the right side kept as solid (bcz not possible to create midsurface in actual model) these two plate are connected by some screws. so now to connect these model i am thinking that i can have three approaches , first very conservative that is bonded whole contact area, second is beam connection and last comes in mind is fixed joint , I have solved modal analysis for all these ( that is what i am performing on actual modal) and found following result.
Can you please suggest which approach i should select, i dont want to use 3d bolt or screw.
fig . Mode 7 with beam connection
Fig . Mode 7 with Fixed joint ( fixed joint is created between the edge of the holes on midsurface and internal surfaces of holes in solid plate)
Fig. Mode 7 for bonded contact on both the surface which are in contact
as we see the bonded contact having high frequency which should be, while performing this bonded contact approach i also came across one warning which i dont know how important when i will be perfoming modal analysis of actual modal which has lot of conatct element in shella nd solid bodies.
(my original model is an enclosure which is having all the solid plates screwd, but due to complexicity few plates are not possible to midsurface and i am performing a modal analysis)

Please check the below course on how to model bolts. Using beam connections or modeling bolts as beam elements will be the best approach if you don't want to model 3D bolts.
