{{ package.Quantity }} {{ package.Title }}

This introductory course describes the use of alternative rules for the design and fabrication of pressure vessels given in ASME BPV Code, Section VIII, Division 2.

This course offers a deep insight into the benefits of applying these alternative rules.  The course presents a brief history and background for these rules and introduces the new Class 1 and Class 2 vessel types by explaining their differences regarding their design and construction. Participants are introduced to the materials, design, fabrication, toughness, examination, inspection, testing and certification requirements with a detailed discussion making these concepts easier to grasp.

The course provides a high-level overview of the Code that prepares participants for the more advanced courses on topics such as design by rule, design by analysis, fatigue analysis, fracture mechanics and fitness-for-service leading to a broader understanding and mastery of these concepts.

You Will Learn To

  • Explain how the requirements of Divisions 1 and 2 of Section VIII compare
  • Explain the theories of failure and design margins of various codes
  • Identify the general requirements of the new Division 2
  • Describe design rules and stress analysis methods
  • Explain fatigue analysis
  • Identify materials and fabrication requirements
  • Identify NDE requirements, pressure testing, and pressure relief requirements
