shell to shell bonded with gap

Hi,

 

I create a shell to shell bonded contact where there is a gap between the edge of one shell and face of the other shell (since the mid-surface is selected to be at the 50% of the thickness).

 

Solidwork gives a warning that the results might not be accurate; why?

 

If the bonded contact create the contraints the nodal displacements must be the same, why the results should not be accurate?

 

thanks
