This article is also available in:

Let’s model an anchoring of a tube with cross-section CHS200x20.

And one side fillet weld between the tube and baseplate.

We perform the analysis for the random load and check the results in the result tables for the welds.

L=565 mm

The length of the weld is related to the mid line of the tube.
