    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 6 interactive, online live sessions provided by the instructor. Recordings and related training content are provided through our online portal.

    Prerequisites: Technical background.

    Level: Intermediate

    This course consists of 6 instructor-led live sessions which consists of presentations, demonstrations and discussions of questions. During each session, participants can ask questions to the instructor (through chat or microphone) which will be answered. After each live session the recording of that session, used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants to view again. If desired by the instructor, exercise files are provided at the end of a session that will be discussed in the next session. These should be performed by the participant before they are discussed in the upcoming live session.
