ASME BPV Code, Section VIII, Division 1: Design & Fabrication of Pressure Vessels
- Format: Classroom
- Duration: 4 days
- Language: English
ASME BPV Code, Section VIII, Division 1 deals with requirements applicable to the design, fabrication, inspection and testing of pressure vessels operating internally or externally. This pressure may be obtained from an external source, or by the application of the heat from a direct or indirect source, or any combination thereof. Specific requirements apply to several classes of material used in pressure vessel construction, and also to fabrication methods such as welding, forging and brazing.
Based on the rules for pressure vessel design and construction, this EuroMaTech course is a comprehensive introduction to the requirements of Section VIII, Division 1 including background, organisation, design, materials, fabrication, inspection, testing and documentation of pressure vessels. The more commonly used subsections and paragraphs will be covered, and a discussion of individual problems or situations will be included.
Delegates attending EuroMaTech’s ASME BPV Code, Section VIII, Division 1: Design & Fabrication of Pressure Vessels training course will develop the following competencies:
- Understand the background of the code rules
- Apply the code rules to more common design and fabrication situations
- Perform calculations for loadings and situations not addressed by the code
Prepare design specifications, design / data reports, and other documentation
