    The EN13445 design code is the harmonized design code for unfired pressure vessel design under the Pressure Equipment Directive (2014/68/EU). Often the rules are applied using automated software packages and the engineer can lose the overview of the calculation being performed.

    This course explains the fundamental equations and principles in these design rules. For example: What is the area replacement rule? How is the Taylor and Forge method applied? What inner-stiffener distance is required to prevent collapse under vacuum, and why? What is the difference between primary and secondary stresses, and how is this evaluated in the code?

    Next to explaining the rules and how to apply them, participants are challenged on why a rule is formulated in a particular way and show important differences with ASME BPVC Section VIII Division 1 code.

    The course consists of 9 online, self-study modules combined with 4 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.

    Results

    After this course, you...

    • understand the structure & scope of the code,

    • understand the failure mechanisms considered in the code,

    • are able to use the design rules for many components, amongst others cylindrical shells under internal & external pressure, openings and nozzles, flat ends and flange connections, heat exchanger tube sheets, rectangular shells and saddles and skirts,

    • understand the role of Design by analysis (Finite Element Analysis) for EN13445 design,

    • can identify the limitations of the design rules,

    • know the important differences with the ASME BPVC VIII-1.

    Who should attend this course

    • Those required to design pressure vessels as per the EN13445 and that want a solid overview and understanding of the design methods used in the code.

    • Engineers that already have experience with the EN13445 and that want to improve their understanding of the backgrounds for the different rules and methods applied in the code.

    • Technicians involved in the production of EN13445 unfired pressure vessels that want a solid understanding of the design basis of their vessels.
