Priestess Question, includes picture.

Hey All,

Working on a little pre-stress problem here....

The assembly is a column with a tensile rod in it to provide pre-load to
work against a moment & shear that will be applied.

W/O having a thermo license, I'm trying to find a way to do this.

I could use a couple of beams then put a spring in between, and end
released, but, the question is can I pre-load the spring?

Fasteners seem to allow a pre-load, but, trying to put one in with that
much separation just crashes Pro/E.

Any one have an idea?
