A simple tutorial on how to use bolt pretension to clamp two parts together before applying a force to pull them apart. The attached file is an ANSYS 18.2 archive.

Here is a followup video showing how to do a beam connection. This takes a little less effort than the solid fastener shown above. The attached file is from ANSYS 2019 R3.
I don't recall what ANSYS V16 looks like. Is Bolt Pretension listed in the Loads in Workbench? Please insert a screen snapshot of the available loads.
here you are, these are the load available on ansysV16; I have been investigated how can i put this pretesnion on beam elements and the answer was using APDL comands but i haven´t found wich of them I must use.
thanks for you answer.
Insert a Bolt Pretension, then pick a line body that is meshed with beam elements. What is stopping you from doing that?
The only requirement is that the line body must have a minimum of 2 elements along the length. If there is only 1 element, it will fail.
