Hi I'm trying to model a slab which is representated by ShellMITC4 elements but at some point of it's length the slab has releases. The releases are zeroLength elements. I want to know if it's possible to representate slab releases as zeroLength elements in the model.

I think yes. You can give very small rotational stiffness...
