How to define the contact state if the corresponding cohesive element is under compression (ABAQUS)

Hi. I am currently using cohesive element traction-separation law for modeling interface element between FRP and concrete. Can any one tell me how to define the contact state if the corresponding cohesive element is under compression in ABAQUS?   Yes, it's said that there won't be any damage if pure compression is applied to cohesive element, but my questions is how to consist of assuming that friction occurs on the damaged part as there is no friction definition in cohesive traction-separation law.   Please add comments if you know something about this. Thanks for help ^_^
