This self-study course provides information and instruction on the design and construction of nuclear power plant piping systems consistent with ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section III, Division 1, Subsection NB. The course incorporates a brief historical perspective on the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code as well as a general overview of the Code. The balance of the course focuses on the appropriate use of the ASME BPVC Section III, Division 1, Subsection NB for the design and construction of Class 1 piping systems. While they will be discussed briefly, detailed instruction will not be provided on the design and construction of Class 1 pipe supports. Participant exercises are provided as an integral part of the training program.
You Will Learn To:
- Describe the overview of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code
- Identify Code requirements for Class 1 Piping Design Specifications
- Explain Class 1 Piping Design by Rule (NB-3600)
- Explain Class 1 Piping Design by Analysis (NB-3200)
Who Should Attend
Design and mechanical engineers, QA and inspection personnel, reactor engineers, welding engineers, operations engineers
This is an intermediate level course for Mechanical and Civil Engineers who are or will be directly or indirectly involved in the design, analysis, or construction of ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Safety Class 1 piping systems. Participants are expected to have at least one year of experience in the design, maintenance, or operation of a Nuclear Power Reactor Facility.
