This Pressure Vessels: Design by Analysis Methods course provides the engineer an in–depth examination of the techniques used in Part 5 Design By Analysis contained in the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, Division 2 (ASME VIII-2).
The course topics covered include: design load combinations, design for protection against plastic collapse (using elastic, limit load, and elastic-plastic stress analysis), local failure, collapse from buckling, fatigue analysis using smooth bar and welded joint technology in the structural stress approach, ratcheting, and the evaluation of thermal stresses. General requirements for numerical simulation using finite element analysis (FEA) techniques are also covered including elastic, limit load, and elastic– plastic stress analysis. The course consists of lectures interspersed with example problems demonstrating concepts covered in the lectures. The focus of the course is design and analysis requirements but 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: Design by Analysis Methods course, students will have a basic understanding of the following:
This course is intended for engineers working for Owner-Users, manufacturers, or engineering and design construction firms in the refining/petrochemical and comparable industries. Engineers who serve in a fitness–for–service role, that perform API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 Level 3 assessments of process pressure vessels, will also find the course beneficial. This course is a detailed extension of the introductory course, Pressure Vessels: ASME VIII-2, also offered by E2G.
