Can we also apply pre-tension in threaded joints just like bolt pre-tension in ansys workbench?

      Or maybe can we use the same bolt pre-tension technique for the threaded joints?

      Can you please explain a bit more what you would like to do and clarify if you mean with a threaded joint (do you mean threaded bolt)?
      Then if that is the case, is your question if it (bolt-pretension) can be applied to a bolt with thread?

      Thank you

      In the given figure the parts marked in blue are threads by which the parts are fit into one another. I know the torque that is required to fit the parts. So, my question was whether I can use bolt pre-tension method for this case or is there any other way in workbench where I can implement the torque or pretension in my simulaton?

      Not sure to be honest, have only used it on standard bolts (so no threads, just a cylinder for the shank of the bolt).

      Also what are you trying to model and get out of the analysis?

      All the best
