4.2.2.4 Shell sandwiched between solid elements

When a shell is sandwiched between two solid elements, we reassign the DOF ID's of the the solid displacements facing the back of the shell to those of the shell displacements stored in that same node. The DOF ID's of solid displacements facing the front of the shell remain unchanged; they will coincide with those of the corresponding solid element nodes.
