Length: 2 days
This two-day MasterClass provides an overview of the design methodology and philosophy of ASME Section VIII, Division 3: Alternative Rules for High Pressure Vessels, which incorporates an overview of the analysis methods used, including the application of FEA, to meet the requirements of the Code.
Examples of practical applications for many of the techniques are discussed to demonstrate the philosophy of the Code criteria. This includes an overview of the problems presented in ASME PTB-5-2013, ASME BPV Code Section VIII, Division 3 Example Problem Manual. Detailed scenarios are examined to illustrate how the analytical techniques are applied, and their respective limitations. An overview of key elements of the materials, fabrication sections, along with a review of special construction techniques and an overview of fatigue calculations and life assessment are also included in the discussion.
Upon completion, attendees will be able to
- Apply the rules of ASME Section VIII, Division 3 to pressure equipment design
- Evaluate the life of a component using ASME Section VIII, Division 3 philosophy
- Define the limitations of the ASME Section VIII, Division 3 in reference to pressure equipment design
