    Connecting Shell Elements

    Shaun Densberger

      I'm trying to connect two surfaces who both have shell elements defined on them, but for the life of me I can't get it to work. The edge of part1 is coplaner with the face of part2 shown in the image below.

      I define a bonded conect between the edge and the face.

      But when I mesh the assembly, it's obivious that the edge and face are not sharing nodes.
