Bolt preload in sol 701

Hi,

I understand that bolt preload is not available in FEMAP (I use version 11.0.1), is there a method of replacing bolt preload in sol 701?

Thanks.

Hello!,
Bolt preload is supported in SOLs 101, 103, 105, 107 through 112, and 601. The workaround in SOL701 could be to use the classical method: to "freeze" the bolt prescribing a thermal strain using a DeltaT.
Best regards,
Blas.
