Alternative to Cohesive Elements / Surface


I want to analyze the interface between the fiber and the matrix in a fiber reinforced composite and I am now looking for the right material model.

In Abaqus there are the options of using cohesive elements or cohesive surface. As an alternative I want to model the interface as a third layer with solid elements.

My idea is to use the existing model Concrete Damaged Plasticity. Does this make sense?

Thank you in advance.
