Thanks, so I should model the fillet of welding to verificate that the stress in the corner is below the yield strength. But for large assemblies with a lot of contacts and singularities, to model welding would take a lot of time.

In my opinion, in the case I present, having a value of 350 MPa in a very small concentrated area, I could disregard it, but what would happen if instead of 350 MPa it had 1000 MPa, would it still be disregarde?

Is there any other way to recognise that these stresses are within the elastic limit without making welding model recommendations or guidelines?
If I want to know the factor of safety of this element, what stress should I assume as the maximum?, How far from the corner where the artificial stress exists?
