Design by Analysis Requirements in ASME BPV Code, Section VIII, Division 2: Alternative Rules

alt text

The focus of this Masterclass is to provide an understanding of the analytical methods found in Part 5 of Section VIII, Division 2 as well as to convey practical information on how to meet the requirements using Finite Element Analysis (FEA). Discussion on the background of the analysis methods and their application is presented through the ASME Pressure Technology Bulletins, PTB-1-2013 Section VIII - Division 2 Criteria and Commentary and PTB-3-2013 Section VIII - Division 2 Example Problem Manual. The attendees gain an appreciation and understanding of how these analytical techniques can be applied to practical design situations. The class includes detailed example problems that demonstrate how the analytical techniques are to be applied, and their limitations. Detailed FEA models are presented to help illustrate the various analytical techniques.

This course provides an in-depth examination of the techniques used in Design by Analysis (DBA) of pressure vessel design. The course includes discussions on general requirements for numerical simulation using FEA; material modeling requirements for use with FEA; design load combinations for pressure vessel design; design for protection against plastic collapse using elastic stress analysis, limit load, and elastic-plastic stress analysis; background and requirements for the new strain limit criterion; buckling analysis types and differences in design margins; fatigue analysis using smooth bar and welded joint technology in the new structural stress approach; ratcheting assessment using both elastic and elastic-plastic analysis; and a special emphasis on the evaluation of thermal stresses.

You Will Learn To

  • Define the basis and application of the design by analysis techniques to ensure proper vessel design.
  • Apply the design by analysis techniques to the evaluation of in-service components through the Life-Cycle Management Process and the relationship to API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 Level 3 Assessments.
  • Evaluate the basis of design by analysis techniques and how they compare with other International Pressure Vessel Codes, EN 13445 and PD 5500

Attendees are encouraged to discuss actual scenarios encountered as part of a class discussion.

Who Should Attend
This Masterclass is intended for pressure vessels engineers working for Owner-Users, manufacturers or engineering and design construction firms in the refining, petrochemical, and other comparable industries that desire a practical understanding of one of the major areas of the new Division 2 of ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section VIII.

This Masterclass is structured on the assumption that participants have a basic understanding of ASME B&PV Code, Section VIII, Division 2, and fatigue concepts.
