Welcome to this course on Pressure Vessels.

Are you tasked with the design or fabrication of pressure vessels, but are not sure where to begin with code requirements? This course is a comprehensive introduction to the requirements of the current Edition of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC), Section VIII, Division 1. Beginning with a unique insight into the background and organization of the code, the course will then focus on the design and construction requirements of the code. Participants will also explore requirements applicable to materials, flanges, supports, design condiitions of pressure vessels. The course highlights the most commonly applied subsections, paragraphs, and appendices.

Pressure vessels of various designs and applications are encountered nowadays throughout refining, petrochemical and process industries as well as in power generation and environmental engineering.

This course is designed to provide you with a complete understanding of Pressure Vessel design.

Pressure vessels are enclosed containers used to hold liquids, vapors, and gases at a pressure significantly higher or lower than the ambient pressure. They are widely used in various industries such as petrochemical, oil and gas, chemical, and food processing industries. Equipment such as storage vessels, reactors, flash drums, separators, and heat exchangers are examples of pressure vessels.

Major topics Covered:

· Introduction & ASME VIII Code

· Internal and external elements

· Design Conditions

· Material Selection

· Joint Efficiency

· Internal Pressure Design

· External pressure Design

· Nozzle Design

The main objective of this course is to transfer to participants the theoretical and practical skills required in projects, obtained from experience and sound engineering practices.

Previous knowledge of this subject is not required to attend to the course.

Taking the course was good for me. Nonetheless, I did not get enough knowledge as I thought I would. Moreover, it would be better to attach or upload the materials for the course. The instructor did an excellent job summarizing the material; however, he did not engage with me. He was mainly reading the material instead of explaining the process of Pressure Vessels Design.
