The main objective of this course is to summarize the Rules for Construction of Power Boilers in the most important concepts and design definitions, the way that students and professionals find practical information, to conclude a work without wasting too much his precious time, in searching important topics for boilers, piping and pressure vessels. The ASME code is written in an old-fashioned way, what makes difficult to be clearly understood, as many paragraphs are repetitive with too many “shall”.
This course brings the most important summary of Rules for Construction of Power Boilers, in a very important didactic form, suited for everyone, beginners, students, technicians, engineers, contractors and all interested professionals, working or not with Boiler Codes. This course was transformed in an easy language, next to users, to facilitate the whole comprehension of boiler design, manufacturing, inspection and tests, properly distributed in 63 pages.
It is known that is extremely rare, a process professional to know all design subjects of the complete ASME Codes. Then, this handbook provides material specifications for boilers and piping design, which are also suitable for use in the construction of pressure vessels and heat exchangers. The specifications define design, manufacturing, materials, heat treatment, inspection and tests, test specimens, and methodologies for testing of materials.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
