FEA simulation of double joints in shear loading

Hi all,

 

I have a question about an FEA simulation. Particularly, about the boumndary conditions that need to be applied to run this simulation. 

 

attempt1:

 

I fixed the right end of the plates and applied loading to the left end. This resulted in stresses go through only the top joint region (W1 in figure attached). 

 

From our understanding, the deformation is got to be symmetric on both the plates. But, when we applied these BCs, it is not smmetric. 

 

 

attempt-2:
