I am pretty new to Karamba, but I have a question when watching the tutorial videos online, specifically the " Analyze a Shell & Beam Structure" video. Here is the link: https://www.karamba3d.com/tutorials/tutorials_basics/simple-shell-and-beam/
A shell element is built on top of a beam and applied with vertical load. From the displacement output, we see that the shell and the surrounding beams are not actually connected with each other. Although they seem to be connected, there is a big displacement discontinuity between beam and shell.
I built up my own model and the result is the same. I cannot find anyway to connect the shell with surrounding beams.
Does anyone have a idea what I should do to make the shell and beams working together against the external loading? Thanks!
