ASME Design By Analysis Course
Design‐By‐Analysis course is designed to familiarize participants with the Design‐By‐Analysis section of the ASME code Section VIII, Division 2, Part 5. Through the rules and guidance outlined in Part 5, this course offers a thorough overview of the requirements for conducting Design‐By‐Analysis according to the ASME Code. It includes detailed instructions on performing finite element analysis by the Code, with example problems provided to illustrate common rules. This course targets engineers with a background in pressure vessel and piping design who require additional assistance in applying Design‐By‐Analysis principles. While prior experience with finite element analysis is not mandatory, a basic understanding of the fundamentals would be beneficial. The examples of this course are performed using Abaqus FEA software.
This course is structured with lectures, demonstrations, and workshops. The workshops are crucial for the training as they aim to solidify the ideas covered in the lectures and demonstrations. Their purpose is to give participants hands-on experience in conducting and troubleshooting real engineering problems.
What you’ll learn
In this course, you will learn about design by analysis of pressure vessels using ASME BPV Code, Section VIII, Division 2, Part 5. This course typically covers topics such as stress analysis, finite element analysis, structural integrity assessment, and design optimization.
Upon successfully finishing this course, every participant will have the ability to:
