How to get rid of unwanted rigid elements?

Hi all,

 

I have a mixed mesh with shells and weldments on the following part:

When I mesh it I am getting long rigid elements (the dark grey ones) between weldment joints that are pretty far apart and seem unrelated as shown below:

This will obviously stiffen the structure and produce incorrect results. I tried playing with the joints settings without success.

So I am wondering if someone has a solution to this, and also what are the rules for the automatic creation of those rigid elements? This is not the first model where this happens.

 

Thanks,
