This paper is concerned with the frictional contact between beams. The purpose is to compare the results obtained by the penalty and Lagrange multiplier methods. The advantages and disadvantages of both methods are generally known and widely discussed but not in the quantitative manner and not specifically for the problem of beam-to-beam contact.
