Created to save participants time and money, this course is a back-to-back offering of “Section VIII, Division 1 - Design & Fabrication of Pressure Vessels” (PD442) and “Inspection, Repairs, and Alterations of Pressure Equipment” (PD441). If you opt to take this combination course, you could save up to $595 in the U.S. and €695 in Europe.
PD442 is based on the rules for pressure vessel design and construction, serving as a comprehensive introduction to the requirements of Section VIII, Division 1 including background, organization, design, materials, fabrication, inspection, testing and documentation of pressure vessels. PD441 is a comprehensive introduction to the requirements of various codes and standards, regarding inspection, repairs and alterations of pressure equipment, and in particular, pressure vessels. A calculator is required. See each individual course for more detailed information.
You Will Learn To:
- Describe the background of the Code
- Explain how to apply the Code rules to more common design and fabrication situations
- Identify the calculations for some of the loadings and situations not addressed by the Code
- Describe the preparation of design specifications, design reports, data reports, and other documentation
- Describe the latest developments in the rapidly advancing field of pressure equipment inspection and repairs
- Identify the work being performed by API, ASME, and PVRC in the related areas.
- Identify the post-construction Codes and Standards and the interrelation of various documents
- Explain the responsibilities of the users, manufacturers, repair organizations, regulatory agencies and authorized inspectors
- Explain how to obtain a National Board stamp
- Identify detailed requirements of the NBIC
- Explain the differences between the NBIC and API-510
- Identify and provide examples of repairs, alterations and the documentation requirements for each
- Describe introductory portions of the ASME post-construction standards
- Provide examples demonstrating the application of the rules
