Rivet or Bolt Connection

Dear all,

Is there anyone that has an example or tutorial with shell elements and rivet/bolt connection?
I am trying to perform a simulation for a tensile test of a fuselage part.
I am using LIAISON_SOLIDE in order to define this connection, but apparently, there is something wrong because, i always have singularity error. I believe for the groups, i did correctly, but there some mutual nodes in different groups and I could not find how to ignore or delete them. Also in that case, if someone has any suggestions, i will be glad.
Thanks in advance for the concern.
