I made a simple model of bar elements and in the midle I used on an element 1000 N bolt preload and constrained both ends. After running the analysis I created freebodies:
All reaktion forces and internal forces are 1000 N except of element with bolt preload. On this element I got 12000 N (in reversed direction).
What is this 12000 N, which value?
I attached the model too.
