How to investigate fracture mechanics parameters for a thin geometry?

The CINT command is used to calculate the fracture mechanics parameters. The CINT command cannot be used with SHELL elements. SOLID elements are required. For a thin structure, you could use an overall surface model with SHELL elements and a local submodel with SOLID elements. The fracture mechanics parameters could be evaluated for the submodel.
