Hi Omar, we are not allowed to download attachments. Can you please share the relevant snapshot? My thought was that you extract the moment reaction and then reapply the same in the analysis. But it looks like bending is taking place in the bolt along with the pretension. In reality we bolt parts together first. Based on this thought you can preload the bolt, lock it and then apply the bending load.
