simulation result not symmetric

Hi All,

 

I have tried a static study in simulation to learn thermal expansion

model dimension: 200mmx50mmx50mm with a T leg

material: alloy steel

fixtures: fixed geometry on the T leg bottom face

external loads: temperature 50 Celsius (ref temp at zero strain=20 Celsius)

mesh: standard mesh

The max displacement is 5.676e-002mm.

I expect that the four edges should have the same max. displacement but the probe shows that they have different value. So is there any tolerance in solidworks simulation?
