Beam connection for internal thread

      We're analyzing an assembly that has two threaded holes with screws. I'm used to using beam connections for bolted joints, but I don't think it works the same for internal threads. The J node is scoped to the hole surface, and the CEs project from that node to the surface, which isn't that realisitic. I wanted to ask if there are other means for doing thus short of including the screw models.
