ASME VIII Division 1
ASME VIII-Div 1 Training Course
Design By Rules The ASME VIII-1 design code is the most widely used design code for pressure vessel design. Often the rules are applied using automated software packages such as Compress or PVElite and the engineer can lose the overview of the calculation being performed. Our course aims to explain the fundamental equations and principles in the design by rules approach. For example: What is the area replacement rule? How is the Taylor and Forge method applied? What is the minimum ligament length between nozzles? What inter-stiffener distance is required to prevent collapse under vacuum? This training is given by one of the experienced consulting engineers from DRG who constantly work on piping and pressure vessel problems. As well as explaining the rules and how to apply them, the trainer will also challenge the participants on why a rule is formulated in a particular way.
