This Pressure Vessels: ASME VIII-1 course provides the engineer a practical understanding of the basics of pressure vessel design rules of the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, Division 1 (ASME VIII-1). The course covers an overview of the organization of ASME VIII-1 including general requirements, component design, material consideration, fabrication, and examination and testing.
The course focuses on the design of shell and head components for internal and external pressure, reinforcement of openings, flange analysis, and the design for protection against brittle fracture and minimum design metal temperature (MDMT). Design considerations for basic refinery vessels such as process towers, drums, heat exchangers, and non–circular pressure vessels are also highlighted. Lectures are interspersed with example problems that introduce concepts covered in the lectures. The focus of the course is design and analysis requirements, but it also includes practical information that comes from instructors who have worked for Owner-Users as well as in a consulting capacity.
Our training course materials are developed and instructed by subject matter experts, many of whom are contributors on the relevant ASME committees.
Upon completion of the Pressure Vessels: ASME VIII-1 course students will have a basic understanding of the following:
This course is intended for engineers working for Owner-Users, manufacturers, or engineering and construction firms in the refining/petrochemical and comparable industries. Engineers serving in a maintenance or reliability role whose responsibilities include the evaluation of process pressure vessels will also benefit.
