Shadow wall

In my geometry there is a cylinder inside one bigger cylinder. The cylinder wall seperates two fluid zones (fluid and Fluid) so a shadow wall is created in FLuent.I dont have any heat transfer involved in my simulation. Only flow and pressure with stationary walls.

Could anyone guide me if there is no heat transfer involved and only stationary walls so if a shadow wall has been created

1. what is the effect of it on the simulation
2. and is there any way to omit this shadow wall in FLUENT?
3. or as there is no heat transfer involved FLUENt automatically will disregard this shadow wall?

Thank you in advance.
