Does this error occur during the bolt pretension step?

Is Plasticity defined for the bolt material with a zero Tangent Modulus?

If so, use the bolt diameter to calculate the bolt area A in square mm.

Calculate the stress in MPa using F/A where F = 20106 N

Compare that stress with the Yield Strength of the bolt material in MPa.

If the stress is larger than the Yield Strength, that is the cause of this error.
