ASME VIII Division 1

ASME VIII division 1 – Edition 2015

Language: English. All the main metallic materials are considered in this standard. It is based on DBF (=Design by Formulae) methods, so it doesn’t contain rules for DBA (=Design by Analysis) or for Fatigue Analysis. A completely new issue of the standards is published every 2 years. The next one is expected in 2017. A full set of allowable stresses is provided in Section II, part D of the Code. Design in creep conditions is possible, however all the values are based on a standard lifetime of 100.000 hours only. Use of this standard with the Pressure Equipment directive is possible, however with specific precautions. More information on ASME VIII Division 1:
