NormalMortarLMMechanicalContact

Similar to the NormalNodalLMMechanicalContact object except the constraints are enforced in an integral way via the mortar method as opposed to pointwise at nodes. Some numerical experiments suggest that the integral method of enforcing normal contact constraints displays worse non-linear convergence than the pointwise method.

Enforces the normal contact complementarity conditions in a mortar discretization
