Two plates of $$8$$ $$mm$$ thickness each are connected by a fillet weld of $$6$$ $$mm$$ thickness as shown in the figure.

The permissible stresses in the plate and the weld are $$150$$ $$MPa$$ and $$110$$ $$MP,$$ respectively. Assuming the length of the weld shown in the figure to be the effective length, the permissible load $$P$$ (in $$kN$$) is _____________.

Two plates are connected by fillet welds of size $$10$$ $$mm$$ and subjected to tension, as shown in the sketch. The thickness of each plate is $$12$$ $$mm.$$ The yield stress and the ultimate tensile stress of steel are $$250$$ $$MPa$$ and $$410$$ $$MPa,$$ respectively. The welding is done in the workshop $$\left( {{\gamma _{mw}} = 1.25} \right).$$

As per the Limit State Method of $$IS$$ $$800:2007,$$ the minimum length (rounded off to the nearest higher multiple of $$5$$ $$mm$$) of each weld to transmit a force $$P$$ equal to $$270$$ $$kN$$ (factored) is
