"Assembly" of elements of different dimensionalities (1-D, 2-D)

I am currently working on a problem which involves both 1D and 2D elements. I know that these elements have different degrees of freedom at a node and, therefore, the procedure of assembly of elements will different from a purely 1D or a purely 2D mesh. I don't know the rest of the details. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I sounds like you're touching upon the idea of a simplex and/or polytope from the subjects of algebraic topology, geometry, and graph theory. But your query is quite vague. Could you ask a more specific question or give some context?
