Is there a way to define NO PENETRATION between Solids and Beams?

I have a solid plate attached at the top of a truss made with beam members.  Looking at the displacement results, the solid plate penetrates through the beams (these components are NOT initially touching).

Second, solid components that are bonded to beams via contact set (selected beam and face of solid) do not appear to be carried through in the simulation results.

Any suggestions?
