Hello Altair Community! I would like to model a so called "bighead" insert which is laminated between the plies of a composite plate. I want to simulate the rip out and measure the force etc. So how can I model properly this problem? I attached an image where you can see how I want to model this insert. Should I use solid or shell element? If I use ply-based modeling I can not find a way to model a bighead between plies. Thank you for your answer in advance!
