This course provides information and instruction on the design, analysis, and qualification of nuclear power plant piping systems that are consistent with the ASME BPV Code, Section III, Division 1, Subsections NB/NC/ND, as well as the parallel requirements of ASME B31.1 for nuclear power plants. The methods and criteria described throughout the course, apply to new systems, as well as modifications or repairs to existing systems.
The course also addresses the integrity assessment of degraded nuclear piping systems (wall thinning and crack damage) using the methods and criteria of ASME BPV Code, XI, operability assessment per NRC Inspection Manual, and piping repairs per ASME BPV Code, XI and ASME PCC-2.
The course covers (a) the code and regulatory requirements, (b) the technical and historical basis of the requirements, and (c) best industry practices for the correct and cost-effective design, analysis, and integrity assessment of nuclear piping systems.
Upon completion of this intermediate-level course, managers, engineers and program developers will have a better understanding of the major international Nuclear Quality Assurance Standards and how they relate and interact.This online, instructor-supported course is designed for engineers, managers and quality personnel who are or will be directly or indirectly involved in manufacturing, fabrication and examination of components or structures for nuclear power facilities.
|This course covers the nature of valves and how they interact for optimum system performance.||This course features a deep investigation of the care, operation, and maintenance of Power and Heating Boilers according to the applicable codes and standards. Fired and unfired boilers, as well as many applications of fired pressure equipment are discussed. Topics are enhanced by ensuring the boiler and fired pressure equipment Manufacturer’s recommendations are also considered.|
This course is a comprehensive introduction to the requirements of Section VIII, Division 1 including background, organization, design, materials, fabrication, inspection, testing and documentation of pressure vessels. It covers the more commonly applied subsections and paragraphs, and includes a practical discussion of individual problems and situations. Designed primarily for beginners, experienced vessel designers who would like to update their knowledge of the Code will also benefit from attending.
The course introduces the requirements of the ASME B31.8 – Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping Systems Code. It covers the scope of B31.8, including its history, the types of systems to which it applies, its organization, and the intended use of the Codebook.
