A single shear lap joint of steel grade S355 is modelled with finite elements to investigate the influence of externally applied tensile loading on the loss of pretension in the engaged bolts. Additionally, a parameter study is performed to understand the effect of various steel grades on the loss of pretension. It is found that the slip resistance of the specimen depends on the steel grade of the clamped plates. Besides, the final resistance of the single shear lap joint has been found to increase after a slip of 0,15 mm has occurred due to a secondary bending moment. However, the final resistance of the specimen has been found to depend on the size of assembling tolerances; the bigger the distance between the clamped plates, the lower the resistance.
