Shell-beam joints

Hi all,

Shell-beam (37.0 KB)

Is it possible to add a joint between a shell and beam element using Beam-Joint-Agent such that the beam element remains continuous?

Simple definition attached.


Hi @James_Whiteley,
using rotational instead of translational joints leads to continuous displacements in the beams (see here

The results may be mesh-dependent though since the point-wise joints lead to stress singularities in the shell.
