When a component is defined as having holes, additional components are being analysed even if only this specific component is being analysed. I can imagine this is needed when using the shear flow approach of determining the joint loads, but the additional components are be analysed as well when a user-defined bearing force is given.

Can you explain why this is happening?

Thanks,
Joost

Are the stiffener discretely-meshed? Do you have panel segments? This sounds like behavior that I would expect when you analyze a skin segment with multiple stringer segments connected to it.
