one bolt has a lower preload. Typical failure modes of bolted joints include rotational loosening (self-loosening), non-rotational loosening (seating, load induced plasticity, thermal creep), corrosive failure, fatigue and rupture.
In practical applications, the bolt joint always requires a sufficiently large preload to guarantee a reliable force transmission between the clamped components.
