Simulation - bolt axial force

1. What is the best way to find-out axial force in foundation bolt (or other bolt)? To use linear or nonlinear simulation - or some other function?

2. As I understand - to find out axial force in bolt due to loading - we don't need to apply pre-load for bolt, yes?  If we'll preload bolt - there'll be much bigger axial load.

3. Is it right way to use static analysis --> foundation bolts with virtual wall --> and after analysis to look at Connector forces?
