7.5 Tied Contact
In some situations it is useful to connect two non-conforming meshes together. This can be done by defining a tied contact interface. In FEBio, the tied contact works very similar to the sliding contact interface. We need to define a slave surface and a master surface, where it is assumed that the slave surface nodes will be tied to the master surface faces.
