When does it make sense to switch to Division 2? In particular, the new classification into Class 1 and Class 2 vessels makes Division 2 a real alternative to the normally used Division 1. Moreover, Division 2 becomes more and more important for Division 1 users, as many of its modern calculation rules can also be used for Division 1 vessels under Code Case 2695 and now Appendix 46. Topics covered are material requirements and certificates, design, FEA, load cycles, fabrication, testing, inspection, pressure testing, overpressure protection and of course the differences to ASME Code Section VIII, Division 1.

The seminar language is English.

Key points of the seminar:

  • General requirements of the ASME Code Section VIII, Division

  • Scope and other applicable standards and regulations

  • Responsibility and duties (user, manufacturer, Authorized Inspector, etc.)

  • Requirements for the UDS (User’s Design Specification) and MDR (Manufacturer’s Design Report)

  • Registered Professional Engineer and alternatives

  • Material selection, additional requirements and permissible stresses, brittle fracture concept, fatigue curves and calculations

  • Design by rule, load cases and load combinations, tolerances, minimum wall thicknesses, joint types and categories

  • Nozzles, inspection openings and external nozzle loads

  • Design by analysis (finite element method), failure modes and analysis methods, stress categorization and stress evaluation

  • Fatigue screening methods to evaluate the necessity of a fatigue analysis

  • Fabrication, welding, postweld heat treatment

  • Inspection and scope of non-destructive examination, classification in “Examination Groups”, permissible test methods and acceptance citeria

  • Hydrostatic and pneumatic pressure test as well as alternatives

  • Overpressure protection, valves, bursting discs and alternatives

Michael FrohnertMichael Frohnert's main field of activities is preparing and reviewing design calculations according to the ASME Code and other international Codes and Standards for the plant and mechanical engineering industries as well as performing ASME inspections and audits. Before changing to CIS GmbH he started his professional career at ONE/TÜV/BV in Essen where he worked as a design engineer, inspector and seminar instructor. During his time with One/TÜV/BV he qualified in the ASME Code business as an ASME Authorized Inspector and went on to become an experienced Authorized Inspector Supervisor. He also holds a National Board endorsement as Authorized Nuclear Inspector. Michael has held numerous public seminars and tailor-made in-company trainings and workshops covering a wide range of topics. His in-depth involvement in the practical application of the ASME design rules is a very beneficial and valuable feature of his seminar work. On behalf of ASME he conducts their Section VIII, Division 2 seminars in Europe and Middle East. Michael Frohnert represents CIS GmbH in the ASME Group of Interested Experts managed by the ASME Delegate of Germany.
