Bearing type options for bolts in version 21.1 and onwards

This article is also available in:
From this version (21.1), we will not consider the Bearing option of the shear force transfer in bolts anymore. For old IDEA StatiCa Connection projects where this type of bolt was set, the type will change from Bearing to Bearing – tension/shear interaction, which may change the results.

This change aims to give a better understanding of the behavior of a connection as well as simplifying and error-proofing the model.
