Length: 2 days
This MasterClass provides practical knowledge and an in-depth examination of the Design-by-Rule methods found in Part 4 of the ASME B&PV Code, Section VIII, Division 2 (ASME VIII-2). This course gives students an overview of the general layout of VIII-2, and discusses how to employ Code Case 2695 and the Common Rule effort to incorporate Class 1 and Class 2 vessels governed by this Code.
The focus of the discussions concerns the design methods of Part 4, including Design Loads and Load Case Combinations, Design Rules for Welded Joints, Design Rules for Shells under Internal Pressure, and Design Rules for Openings in Shells and Heads. Other topics within Part 4 that are referenced include the Design Rules for Noncircular Vessels, Supports and Attachments, and Flanged Joints.
The class evaluates the background and procedures described in Part 3, that explain how to calculate the minimum design metal temperature (MDMT); as well as those found in Part 7, to determine the Examination Group and appropriate Nondestructive Examination (NDE) requirements. Case studies and real-world examples are reviewed in detail with active class discussion and analysis.
You Will Learn To
- Navigate efficiently through the Parts of ASME VIII–2
- Identify the circumstances under which the application of the Design-by-Rule methods of ASME VIII-2 affords beneficial cost savings to the pressure vessel design.
- Explain the difference in philosophy regarding material toughness requirements and the nondestructive examination requirements of ASME VIII–1 and ASME VIII–2.
