Gain a unique insight into the background and organization of ASME's Boiler and Pressure Vessel (BPV) Code, Section VIII, Divisions 1 and 2. This Learning Path, comprised of two self-study eLearning courses accessible via ASME's Learning Hub, covers the design and construction requirements of the Code along with the requirements applicable to materials, fabrication, inspection, testing, and certification of pressure vessels.

Both courses feature recordings of Live Virtual Classroom sessions taught by ASME's expert Instructor and engages participants in a series of exercises to prepare for more advanced courses on topics such as design by rule, design by analysis, fatigue analysis, fracture mechanics and fitness-for-service.

By participating in this Learning Path, you will learn how to successfully:

  • Describe the scope, purpose, and organization of the ASME BPV Code, Section VIII, Division 1 and 2
  • Define allowable materials, explain how to reclassify materials, and identify material traceability requirements
  • Explain how to apply the Code rules to common design and fabrication situations along with nondestructive examination (NDE) requirements
  • Explain theories of failure and design margins applied to the vessel classes
  • Describe the general concepts for design by rule and design by analysis rules
  • Describe fatigue analysis screening procedures
