Is it necessary to have node coincidence between bonded surfaces?

      I have this steel structure. I have a friction contact between the beams, and a bonded contact between the welds and the beams. Do I need node matching between the nodes of the beam and the nodes of the welds for an optimal solution?



      No node merging


      No node merging between welds and beam

      No it is not required. But it would be good to have a similar mesh size.
