FEA on Welding Bead

I need to do the FEA on a water tank.


My supervisor said he is interested to know whether the welding is strong enough or not. But when I run the Mesh, the welding bead gives a lot of problem.


Because it is a water tank, actually I am thinking to use shell mesh.


But is that the correct way since my supervisor will ask me why don't I check the Welding in FEA?


Also, what is the best method to represent the water weight in this kind of FEA? I know the weight will be 2000Kg.

Any idea?
