ASME BPV Code, Section VIII, Division 1: Construction of Pressure Vessels - Day One to Three

Based on the rules for pressure vessel 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 feature includes: how to apply the Code requirements to a real-life example of a vessel and review the lessons learned via case studies.

Special Requirements
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

Who Should Attend
Those involved with the purchase, design, fabrication, or inspection of pressure vessels. Some technical background will be helpful, but attendees are not required to have an Engineering degree or previous work experience in the subject matter.

Overview of In-service Codes for Inspection, Repairs, and Alterations of Pressure Equipment - Day Four to Five

This course is a comprehensive introduction to the requirements of various codes and standards, regarding inspection, repairs and alterations of pressure equipment, and in particular, pressure vessels. The requirements of the National Board Inspection Code and the API-510 are covered in detail. A brief introduction to API-579, Fitness-for-Service is presented, and simple flaw evaluation procedures are evaluated. Additionally, the activities of ASME's Post Construction Committee are explained and documents published by this Committee are discussed.

You Will Learn To

  • Describe the latest developments in the rapidly advancing field of pressure equipment inspection and repairs
  • Identify the post-construction Codes and Standards and the interrelation of various documents
  • Explain the responsibilities of the users, manufacturers, repair organizations, regulatory agencies and authorized inspectors
  • Explain how to obtain a National Board stamp
  • Identify selected, detailed requirements of the API 510
