Companion Guide to the Asme Boiler & Pressure Vessel Codes. Vol. 1: Criteria and Commentary on Select Aspects of the Boiler & Pressure Vessel and Piping Codes pdf
This edition continues to address the purpose of the previous editions to serve as a “Primer” to help the user weave through varied aspects of the ASME Codes and B31 Piping Codes, in addition to a discussion of “The Criteria and Commentary on Select Aspects of ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel and Piping Codes” of interest to “end users”. This publication has been revised in providing all of the aspects of the previous editions, while updating to the current 2015 Codes and topics pertinent to 2017 B&PV Code.
This book strives to be a comprehensive Companion Guide to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. This fully updated and revised fifth edition of this classic reference work has addressed in 40 chapters ASME 2015 Boiler Pressure Vessel & Piping Codes and Standards, whereas the fourth edition addressed 2010 Code edition and 2011 addenda. In this entirely new publication experts discussed several ongoing issues even beyond 2015 Code edition. With entirely new and extensively re-written chapters, the Code Experts had in mind the use of this publication focused on the Addenda leading to the 2017 B&PV Code. This edition is available in a convenient two-volume format that focuses on all twelve sections of the ASME Code and has two additional chapters covering the foreseeable new trends of the ASME boiler and pressure vessel codes. Several chapters are comprehensively covered for this edition by 51 ASME B&PV Code experts, whose biographical data is included in the two volumes. An easy and quick to understand introduction in the front matter of each of the volumes succinctly explains what is elaborated in nearly 2000 pages of this 2-volume publication. Another feature of this publication is all users of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code can identify from the index the 8000 individual Code related items. All of the 51 authors who contributed to 40 Chapters in this fifth edition considerably updated, revised or added to the content matter covered in the fourth edition to address the current and future trends as well as dramatic changes in the industry in the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Sections I through XII, and B31 Piping Codes that appear in Volume 2.

Considering significant organizational changes are taking place in ASME that reflect the industry’s demands both in USA and internationally, salient points of these have been captured in both the volumes by experts who have firsthand information about these. Volume 1 covers ASME Code Sections I through VII, and Volume 2 addresses ASME Code Sections VIII through XII. Continuing and replacement authors have considerably updated the text, tables, and figures of the previous edition to be in line with the 2015 Code and topics pertinent to 2017 B&PV Code, bringing the insight knowledge of these experts in updating the previous edition. Fresh look has been provided by new authors, who in replacing previous contributors of few chapters, have provided added perspectives rendered in the earlier editions. In certain cases, the chapters had been entirely rewritten by replacement experts, with new titles but addressing the same topics while revising in its entirety and updating the information to the 2015 ASME Code Edition and topics pertinent to 2017 B&PV Code.
Volume 1 has Chapter 1 covering “Section I—Introduction to Power Boilers” which has been authored by two new contributors, replacing the previous one, who revised this chapter considerably. Likewise, Chapter 2 “Section VII—Recommended Guidelines for The Care of Power Boilers” has a replacement author who has revised the chapter to a considerable extent. Chapter 3 for this edition has been reorganized considering the changes in the application of material properties; accordingly, Section 3.6 of Chapter 3 of the fourth edition, “Non-metallic Material used in Structural Applications”, has been dropped for the fifth edition and a considerably enlarged version of this topic is Chapter 12 for this edition. Considerable changes in this chapter, including graphics, have been updated and included in this edition.
In volume 1 Chapters 4 through 7, 9 through 11, 14 and 16 of the fourth edition, have been updated and revised considerably by the continuing authors. Chapter 12 of this edition addresses new code material “Report on Committee on Nonmetallic Pressure Piping Systems, with its published requirements in three separate standards: NM-1 Thermoplastic Pressure Piping Systems; NM-2 FRP Pressure Piping Systems; and NM-3 Nonmetallic Materials (includes specifications and material properties similar to BPV Code Section II)” by code experts. Chapters 13, 18, 19 and 20 have new authors replacing the previous contributors and thereby considerably revising fourth edition content of these chapters. Chapter 15 covering Code Section III Division 2 has a replacement author in addition to other experts to address topics which had not been covered in the previous editions. Chapter 17 that covers “Division 5—High Temperature Reactors” authored by Code experts has considerable material from Chapter 12 of the fourth edition, who authored it in the fourth edition, included in this Chapter 17 of the current fifth edition. Chapter 8 has a replacement author for this fifth edition.
