    Warning: The Simplified bonding option was used in this study.

      I'm getting this message from the iterative solver during a relatively long static simulation (Number of Nodes 199,883).  What does it mean?  How much do I care?  Can I control it?

       

      More info:  This bonding was done automatically through the global contact condition.  There are no Contact Sets added.  Mesh controls were used on some bodies and also some split lines.  Where the split lines contact the mesh-controlled bodies, the mesh densities were set to the same value.  The contact areas are relatively large, in the sense (assuming the mesh density set) there should be plenty of nodes in common.  I haven't seen any other warning messages. -- John Willett
