Length: 2 days
The rules of Part UHX have parameters and options that can have a significant impact on the design of heat exchangers. Relevant changes to the current edition of the ASME Code, as well as its future directions, are discussed in detail. This interactive, two-day MasterClass offers a thorough insight into the history and bases for the mandatory rules for the mechanical design of shell and tube heat exchangers supplied with the ASME mark. The program provides a review of the detailed design procedures and a thorough explanation of the significant parameters and available options. Through both presentation and discussion, participants gain a greater appreciation and understanding of how these parameters and options can impact their designs.
The class includes detailed example problems that demonstrate, for "real world," heat exchangers, how the rules are to be applied, and how the options can influence the final design. Examples are worked through in "real time" using Mathcad models of the UHX procedures.
You Will Learn To
- Define the analytical basis of heat exchanger design rules contained in ASME BPV Code, Section VIII
- Evaluate the significance of the various parameters used in tubesheet design/tube loading and how they can impact the final heat exchanger design
- Apply the step-by-step design procedure for determining tubesheet stresses tube loading
- Interpret the significance of the calculated stresses and the importance of stress categories
- Explain the significance of the changes in to the current Code edition (as well those of the future edition) of Part UHX

Who Should Attend
This MasterClass is an essential resource for heat exchanger engineers/designers, developers of heat exchanger design software, as well as managers/supervisors of heat exchanger design activity.
Participants are encouraged to bring examples of real issues they have experienced or are experiencing for class discussion.
This MasterClass is structured on the assumption that participants have a basic understanding of ASME BPV Code, Section VIII.
