I want to use inistate command and upgeom to transfer the stresses and deformation of a press-fit  (intereference) using the contacts option offset with a suitable intereference treatment, to another larger assembly where I wish to use this specific contact defined as press-fit in the first simulation as bonded to solve the static structural simulation linearly. I have used the write and read commands associated with inistate but the initial stresses after importing do not match at all. 

The above image attached is the stress contour I expect as initial stresses upon import, but it rather ends up

as attached below.

 

Could someone guide me what I must check to ensure things as consistent.

 

Thanks in advance
