188.8.131.52 Shell on top of solid element
When a shell is coincident with the face of a solid element, we assume that the face of the solid element coincides with the back face ( ) of the shell element. This means that the solid element nodal displacements on that face coincide with the shell nodal displacements . Therefore, when we use UnpackLM for those solid elements, we should reassign the DOF ID's of the displacements to those of the displacements stored in that same node.
