KOULUTUS ON TÄYNNÄ! THIS COURSE IS FULL! This course covers the rules of ASME Code Section VIII Division 1 including background and organization. Apart from design aspects, the course also deals with the rules for materials, fabrication, inspection, testing and documentation. It covers the more commonly applied subsections and paragraphs and includes a practical discussion of individual problems and situations. In addition, a real life example will demonstrate the application of the paragraphs tackled during the course. Upon completion, the participants will be able to interpret the basic ASME Code Section VIII, Division 1, and use it effectively. What will I learn in this course? - An understanding of the background of the code and the ASME system - How to apply code rules to common design,fabrication, and testing situations - How to perform calculations for common design tasks and also situations not addressed by the code - How to prepare design specifications, design reports, data reports and other documentation What is required: - A calculator is required - Latest edition of the code book (VIII Div.1) is suggested (not required) Course language: English
