    Design-by-Rules. The ASME VIII-1 design code is the most widely used design code for pressure vessel design. Often the rules are applied using automated software packages such as Compress or PVElite and the engineer can lose the overview of the calculation being performed.   This course aims to explain the fundamental equations and principles in the design by rules approach. For example: What is the area replacement rule? How is the Taylor and Forge method applied for flanges? What is the minimum ligament length between nozzles and why? What inter-stiffener distance is required to prevent collapse under vacuum? 

    Topics include many design features such as design of shells and heads under internal and external pressure, nozzles & openings, flange connections, heat exchanger, tubesheets, saddles and skirts. 

    As well as explaining the rules and how to apply them, you will be challenged on why a rule is formulated in a particular way.

    The course consists of 8 online, self-study modules combined with 3 online live sessions with the instructor. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account.

    After the course you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course and the discussions forum. This allows you to perform modules again when you need to refresh the knowledge for your projects.
