2019 Pressure Vessel Seminar

Stress Engineering Services, June 25, 2019

Event Overview

The ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Codes (BPVC) are the most widely used pressure design codes in the world. These codes continue to influence design methods used in a variety of industries such as petroleum refineries, chemical plants, upstream oil & gas exploration & production, midstream compressor stations, and many more.

Stress Engineering Services has developed a comprehensive three-day Pressure Vessel Seminar that focuses on many of the important topics impacting engineers in this field including basic design principals in Division 1 & 2, design for high pressure using fracture mechanics (Division 3), and fatigue, as well as detailed discussions on material selection and welding.

This seminar will provide participants with an advanced understanding of the general ASME BPVC methods, as well as a broad overview of vessel types and nomenclature, and much more.

Key Event Topics

  • ASME metallurgy overview and its role in the industry
  • Crucial issues surrounding welding, material selection and inspection
  • Section VIII, Division 1 – Rules for Construction of Pressure Vessels
  • Section VIII, Division 2 – Alternative Rules
