About the course
4 Live sessions
Starts May 28
The ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel section VIII code is the most frequently used pressure vessel design code in the world. Two design approaches are present in the code: design by rules and design by analysis. Design by Analysis in ASME VIII-2 Part 5 is used to complement the Design by Rules parts of the code. Why might this be necessary? Perhaps a feature is located too close to a discontinuity or has a non-standard configuration, perhaps a detailed fatigue calculation is required or loadings other than pressure are present?
This course covers how to conduct Design by Analysis code compliance checks for rupture, ratcheting, fatigue and buckling load cases.
During which topics such as the difference between primary or secondary stresses, the influence of weld type on fatigue life and obtaining the structural stress will be addressed using FEM software.

This course consists of 4 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.
Access to the course
After your purchase is confirmed you receive an account to the EngineeringTrainer online learning portal, where you find the course welcome chapter and instructions on how to join the live sessions. Sessions are held using the software GoToMeeting and a log-in link is provided for each session through the portal. A test link is provided from the start such as to test if you are able to properly join the sessions prior to the first session. Live sessions can be joined using any device, including tabled and mobile.
You receive 6-months unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your work projects.
The live sessions are scheduled twofold to service participants in different time-zones. Upon enrollment each participant is appointed to a group based on their preferences.

Exercise files can be downloaded, these can include .pdf files with the exercise questions, software models or other file types. Videos will not be available for download, but can be accessed directly with your account on the portal. If slides are used in the videos or live sessions these can be viewed separately as well through the portal, but are not available for download. You receive 6-months unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your work projects.
Yes, interactive Q&A sessions are included in this course that allow you to interact with the instructor and ask questions.
No software is required for participants of this course.
Demonstrations are provided using the FEM software FEPipe, but having access to this software is not required.
