I'm modeling steel beam with shell elements, and there is a jump in stress values between flange and web junction. how can I reduce this stress difference.

this is very unclear, i did not understand the problem. but if flange and web are two different parts connected by e.g tie then there should be a jump. if they are one part, then there will be stress concentration which u might misinterpreted as jump. these are the only things come to my mind based on ur explanation.
