magnitude error

      I created a nonlinear model with bolted connection trying to simulate an experiment to find the moment vs deflection over time. each time I modify the model and run it I get a different error. this time it seems that the magnitude limit is exceeded. I have attached the model. I need to know what is it that I am applying wrong and causing the errors. I have attached the model.

      Bolt Pretension is typically run in a 2-step solution.
      Step 1 applies the bolt pretension load while the applied moments are zero.
      Step 2 changes the bolt to Lock then ramps up the moments.
      It's better to use File Archive to create a .wbpz file, which can be attached to these replies.
