Short summary
This paper presents a way to model the rotational constraint between beam elements in 3-D space. Beam elements are models used to simulate the behavior of slender objects. Such objects can be found for e.g. in bridges, space structures, robots, and networks of fibers (paper, cloth, biological tissue, etc). In many cases, beam elements are welded or bonded together. To model this bonding, the relative displacements and rotations shall be limited at the contact point using appropriate constraints.
