German term or phrase: Montagevorspannkraft
My context:
----
Durch das Anzugsmoment wird die Schraube indirekt mit einer Montagevorspannkraft beaufschlagt, die zu einer Verlängerung der Schraube und einer Verkürzung der Bauteile führt.
----

The term is defined very precisely here http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montagevorspannkraft

Is there a special term in English with this very specific meaning, or do I need to paraphrase here?

English translation:assembly prestressing force
Explanation:
Prestressing force is also offered by Langenscheidt Technik for Vorspannkraft. I'm not an engineer, though.

assembly prestressing force, Montagevorspannkraft

In order to tighten screw connections in series assembly methods are known which are essentially controlled with respect to torque and/or with respect to rotational angle. Using these known methods the desired screw prestressing force of the particular screw connection is achieved more or less precisely, the said force being described as a parameter for each screw connection. However, a constant, reproducible quality of the screw connection, i.e. a uniform screw prestressing force during each tightening, cannot be achieved, since the screw prestressing, force obtained fluctuates considerably on account of a multiplicity of factors determining it.

I didn't add this to the glossary as I'm not entirely sure about including 'assembly' - I can't find any usage online at any rate. 'Prestressing force' is OK (although I have actually used 'preload force' for compatibility with other documents). After checking with the client, I have simply used "preload force", i.e. dropped 'Montage-'.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks. There are a couple of entries for "Vorspannkraft" on here too. I was mainly wondering if the "Montage" needs to be (or indeed can) included in the target term.
