Are there any bolt pretension examples in ANSYS Workbench Simulation 11.0?

Yes, please see the attached example in which a bolt-pretension load is applied in the second load step after the contact is established in the first load step. An internal pressure is applied in the third load step after locking the preload in place. This results in putting the connected joint in tension. Note that only two loads steps were actually needed for this loading scenario.
