Online Companion Guide to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes: Criteria and Commentary on Select Aspects of the Boiler & Pressure Vessel Codes

Publisher:
ASME Press
Publication date:
2020

This chapter covers alternative rules to the construction of pressure vessels under Section VIII, Division 2. The Section is made up of nine parts and the organization within each part is as follows: rules and requirements, nomenclature, tables, figures, normative annexes, and informative annexes. Part 1 contains general requirements addressing the following subjects: reference standards, units of measurement, tolerances, and technical inquiries. Part 2 consolidates the responsibilities and duties of the User, Manufacturer, and Authorized Inspector. It also contains general requirements for report forms and maintenance of records. Part 3 contains all requirements related to materials of construction and...
