Create a measure for 3D Bolt Preload command

Create a measure for 3D Bolt Preload command

Create a measure to report the preload value in a 3D preloaded bolt in a Static Simulation analysis.  Currently, if the bolt is split using a volume region, and defined contact with the surrounding parts, the only judge of how much preload is being applied is the Interface force measure at the bolt head, and that value changes whenever the size of the volume region of the bolt changes.

Creating a measure that reports the value of the preload in the bolt will confirm too the user that the appropriate amount of preload is being applied to the model.
