Familiarize Yourself with the New Division 2 Rules
The new ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, Division 2 was published on July 1, 2007. This 2007 Edition became mandatory for vessel design in July, 2009. The new Section VIII, Division 2 Code includes a complete re-organization of the text, introduces a consistent and user-friendly format style, and provides a number of new and enhanced pressure vessel design procedures. Familiarity with the new organization and the application of these rules is essential to both the new and experienced vessel engineer to ensure proper vessel design.
Pressure Vessels: The New Division 2 Rules is given by instructors who were major contributors to the development of the new code. ASME contracted Equity to write PTB-1-2009 Section VIII - Division 2 Criteria and Commentary and PTB-3-2009 Section VIII - Division 2 Example Problem Manual because our engineers were instrumental in the development of this new code and have years of experience in the design and analysis of pressure vessels for owner-users as well as in a consulting capacity.
This 3-day course covers general requirements, responsibilities and duties, material requirements, Design-By-Rules (DBR), Design-By-Analysis (DBA), fabrication requirements, inspection and examination requirements, pressure testing requirements, and pressure vessel overpressure protection. In addition to DBA requirements, the background and use of Code case 2605 covering supplemental design requirements for vessels constructed from 2.25Cr-1Mo-V material is covered as well as a comparison between the new and previous editions of Division 2. Through the use of PTB-1-2009 Section VIII - Division 2 Criteria and Commentary and PTB-3-2009 Section VIII - Division 2 Example Problem Manual, this course provides the vessel design engineer and plant engineer with a practical understanding and working knowledge of the basics of the new Division 2.
The focus of the course is to provide an understanding of the general requirements in the new Division 2, but it also includes practical information from developers of the new Code who have used this code for design of new pressure vessels.
Equity also offers a specialty course, Pressure Vessels: Design by Analysis Methods, to give engineers hands-on experience in performing DBA using FEA technology. This course provides an in-depth focus of the new Design by Analysis (DBA) rules in the current edition of Division 2.
The course consists of lectures covering background on the new Division 2 rules interspersed with DBR example problems that demonstrate concepts in the new Code. The problems will be worked by the students with solutions reviewed by the class. Example problems on material toughness requirements and DBR requirements of Part 4 are extensively covered, and an overview and introduction to example problems for DBA Part 5 are also provided.back to top
