An Overview of the New ASME Section VIII, Division 2 Pressure Vessel Code

by David A. Osage, P.E., ASME Fellow / July 2003


ASME has decided to undertake a major revision, including significant technical updates, of Section VIII, Division 2 of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. Division 1 will not be affected, but it is anticipated that the revised Division 2 Code will allow significantly more efficient construction for many current Division 1 applications. As a result, it is expected that the revised code will be used for many more applications than the current Division 2.
