Concrete Screws

Is there any recommended approach to analyze concrete screws. For example: Anchoring a plate with concrete screws and analyzing forces in that screw. Currently, I am using fixed constraint at the hole location, is it a realist approach when I cannot use bolt connectors or should I need to model the 3D screw. 

Does preload apply to concrete screws too?
