About the course

ASME codes and standards are the most widely used in the world for the design, operation, maintenance, and repair of power boilers, pressure vessels and nuclear facilities.

This course will provide the participant with a detailed knowledge of the responsibilities of personnel involved in the design, fabrication and examination of new power boiler plant components and new construction activity as defined by Section I of the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code.

The program also gives an insight and information about other Sections of ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel codes. The participants will be explained the mechanics of adopting and applying the code rules and design formulae for construction of boilers.

  • The scope and purpose of the Sections of the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code
  • The rules and requirements in Section I for the design of power boilers
  • The application of Section II Materials and their allowable stresses
  • The basic rules for fabrication, examination and testing (hydrotest)
  • The process for quality control and certification
