ASME Standards

SDC Verifier » Engineering Standards » ASME Standards

Currently, in SDC Verifier, it is possible to perform code checking according to two ASME standards:

  • ASME Section VIII, Division 2, 2010 – Design for longitudinal stress check. Section 8 is dedicated to pressure vessels.
  • ASME B31.8-2018 (Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping Systems)

ASME B31.8-2018 (Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping Systems)

ASME B31.8 covers gas transmission and distribution piping systems, including gas pipelines, gas compressor stations, gas metering and regulation stations, gas mains, and service lines up to the outlet of the customer’s meter set assembly. It includes gas transmission and gathering pipelines, including appurtenances that are installed offshore for the purpose of transporting gas from production facilities to onshore locations; gas storage equipment of the closed pipe type that is fabricated or forged from pipe or fabricated from pipe and fittings; and gas storage lines.

ASME Section 8 (Div 2, 2010) – Design for longitudinal stress check. Pressure Vessels.

ASME Section VIII specifies the design, manufacturing, inspection, certification, and testing of both fired and unfired pressure vessels, particularly those that operate at pressures greater than 15 psi.

Division 2 rules only cover vessels to be installed in a fixed location for a specific service. Where operation and maintenance control is retained during the useful life of the vessel. And user prepares the design specifications.

See the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Demo (ASME VIII Div 2) on our YouTube Channel

ASME issued its first Standard, Code for the Conduct of Trials of Steam Boilers, in 1884. This paper evolved into Rules for the Construction of Stationary Boilers and for Allowable Working Pressure – the first edition of ASME’s now-legendary Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) – issued in 1914 and published in 1915.

Today, it includes 31 books covering industrial and residential boilers, nuclear reactor components, transport tanks, and other pressure vessels forms.
