The combo includes two courses. Find detailed dates and information on the individual course product pages.

Are you tasked with the design or fabrication of pressure vessels, but are not sure where to begin with code requirements?  Are you or members of your team tasked with determining if pressure equipment is fit to continue operation for some desired future period?  This exclusive ASME learning path includes two of our most popular courses, combining to provide you with a comprehensive introduction to the requirements of the current edition of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC), Section VIII, Division 1, and helps course helps participants understand and apply the API/ASME fitness-for-service standard in their daily work.
 
Course 1: ASME BPV Code, Section VIII, Division 1: Design and Construction 
 
This course is a comprehensive introduction to the requirements of the current edition of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC), Section VIII, Division 1.  Beginning with a unique insight into the background and organization of the Code, the course will then focus on the design and construction requirements of the Code. Participants will also explore requirements applicable to materials, fabrication, inspection, testing, and certification of pressure vessels.  Participants will perform relevant example calculations on Appendix 2 flanges, nozzle reinforcement, and much more! Real world case studies highlight areas such as Opening Reinforcements/ Nozzle Reinforcement and Appendix 2 Bolted Flange Calculation.

  • Schedule: This course is offered in five-day sessions, commencing at 10:30 AM and ends at 3:30 PM Eastern each day, with breaks scheduled throughout. 

Course 2: API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 Fitness-For-Service Evaluation 
 
This course helps participants understand and apply the API/ASME fitness-for-service standard in their daily work. The material presented in the course shows how the disciplines of stress analysis, materials engineering, and nondestructive inspection interact and apply to fitness-for-service assessment. 

  • Schedule: This course runs from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM and 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM Eastern each day, with breaks throughout  

Who Should Attend?
This exclusive learning path is intended for those involved with the purchase, design, fabrication, or inspection of pressure vessels as well as the evaluation and maintenance of facilities.  This includes engineers, contractors, inspectors, and engineering management who wish to have a more comprehensive understanding of pressure vessels and their relationship to the API/ASME fitness-for-service standard.  Some technical background will be helpful, but attendees are not required to have an Engineering degree or previous work experience in the subject matter.

This ASME Virtual Classroom course is held live with an instructor on our online learning platform.  Certificate of completion will be issued to registrants who successfully attend and complete the course.

Instructors

Ramesh Tiwari, P.E., is an ASME member and a specialist in the areas of pressure vessels, heat exchangers, and storage tanks.  He is recognized for his expertise with the ASME Section VIII, Divisions 1 and 2 (pressure vessels), NBIC and API 510 (repair and alteration of pressure vessels), TEMA and API 660 Standards (shell and tube heat exchangers), and API 650 and API 620 Standards (storage tanks).  Ramesh holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering and is a registered Professional Engineer in Texas and Maryland. 
 
Ramesh has over 25 years of experience across a variety of projects and disciplines, such as mechanical design of pressure vessels and storage tanks, thermal and mechanical design of shell and tube heat exchangers, fatigue analysis of pressure vessels, fitness-for-service evaluations to assure structural integrity of equipment, and owner’s engineer for procurement of pressure vessels and heat exchangers. He is also the editor-in-chief of “Fixed Equipment Newsletter,” which is read widely and respected worldwide since 2007.
 
Gregory Brown, Ph.D., is the principal and owner of Blue Ring Engineering.  He is a current voting member of the ASME/API Joint Committee on Fitness-For-Service (API 579/ASME FFS-1).  Dr. Brown currently performs computational mechanics and fitness-for-service assessments for a variety of industries using API 579, as well as supporting litigation and failure analysis.  He also develops specialized software and methodologies for structural analysis and life assessment. Previously Dr. Brown was the Chief Engineer for TEAM/Quest Integrity.
 
Dr. Brown joined Dr. Ted Anderson in 2001 at Structural Reliability Technology, which later became part of the Quest Integrity Group.  Prior to SRT, he developed algorithms to update industrial finite element models using experimental measurements and performed flutter analyses of F16 and F18 fighter aircraft.  Dr. Anderson, Dr. Brown, and the engineers at Structural Reliability Technology performed much of the work that was incorporated into API 579.
