Difference between a direct joint with and without a physical connection

      I have a question about joints. I have a model composed by beams and I realized that it is possible to define direct joints using points without a physical contact between them. In a static, modal or transient analysis, this fact will change something?


      In a proper way, the question is if the direct physical contact between the beams is pertinent in one of the analysis listed before or we can just define a direct joint without connecting physically them?
