2D Shell analysis question

Hello,

I'm new to NX. Trying to solve simple model with 2D mesh.
One edge is fixed, another is loaded with vertical force. Material is usual Steel from NX library.
Below I post the displacement result plots. Looks like only side plates are working properly. 
What am I doing wrong? Thanks

If I see it correctly the meshes are not connected at the edges of the sheets. You can use stitch to connect them.

Everything seems to be stitched, there are no duplicate nodes. 
Anyway I tried to stich once again and recalculate. Nothing changed.
