Based on the rules for pressure vessel design and construction, this course is a comprehensive introduction to the requirements of Section VIII, Division 1 including background, organization, design, materials, fabrication, inspection, testing and documentation of pressure vessels. It covers the more commonly applied subsections and paragraphs, and includes a practical discussion of individual problems and situations. Designed primarily for beginners, experienced vessel designers, who would like to update their knowledge of the Code, will also benefit from attending.
Special features include: an overview of Code organization, offering of updated editions, and expert instruction on how to prepare and submit an inquiry to the Code Committee for Code Interpretation, Code Cases or Code Revision.
A calculator is required. It is suggested (but not required) that you bring the latest edition of the ASME codebook, BPVC Section VIII - Rules for Construction of Pressure Vessels Division 1.
You Will Learn To:
- Describe the background of the Code
- Explain how to apply the Code rules to more common design and fabrication situations
- Identify the calculations for some of the loadings and situations not addressed by the Code
- Describe the preparation of design specifications, design reports, data reports, and other documentation
