I am having trouble getting a beam end joint to bond to a solid face. I created the beam from a solid, extruded shape. The end of the solid (beam) was sniped and shaped to connect to another solid. I split the solid (beam)just beyond the sheped end and in Simulation created a beam out of the remining continuous solid. When I mesh the model I get a result that looks like picture below. Notice the gap between the beam end and the solid shape. When I look at the beam end, the yellowish green ball (joint end) appears right where the cut is, away from where I initially created the split. When I run the simulation, the plate (in orange) folds right where the cut is and the stresses go through the roof.
I cant understand why the joint would end so far from where I modeled the beam end. Any thoughts?
For comparison I'm including a photo showing the model before meshing, which shows the split
