Becht is excited to present this ASME Section VIII, Division 1 Pressure Vessel Design course with software training. Enhance your understanding of ASME Section VIII, Division 1 design rules through five days of intensive training with hands-on problem solving.
Who Should Attend? Individuals involved with the design or inspection of pressure vessels who are looking to gain hands-on experience. This course is intended for beginners, as well as experienced vessel designers and inspectors who would like to update their knowledge of the Code. Some degree of technical background will be helpful, but such individuals are not required to have an Engineering degree or previous work experience in the subject matter.
Becht's 3 day Introduction to Welded Steel Tanks course is essential for engineers and inspection and maintenance personnel involved in the design, purchasing, fabrication, repair, alteration, reconstruction, or maintenance of new atmospheric and low-pressure steel tanks to meet API Code requirements. This course discusses Maintenance, Repair and Design of Tanks based on API-653 and API-650. The following topics are covered in this course.
Who Should Attend? Engineers and Inspectors who are responsible for evaluating the condition of Tanks in refineries, chemical plants and terminals. Also Project Engineers who are dealing with installation and repairs of existing and new tanks.

Becht's 2 day Piping Vibration Analysis & Practical Engineering Solutions in Process Plants course provides a background on fundamental causes of piping vibration and how to identify sources of vibration, rules of thumb and simplified methods for evaluating vibration severity, and methods of treatment. A wide variety of causes of vibration are covered in order to enable the participant to properly evaluate the variety of piping vibration problems that can occur in piping systems. Causes of vibration are discussed with respect to very basic energy and momentum principles that enable the participant to understand what is happening within and to the piping system.
Who Should Attend? This course is directed towards engineers responsible for operating piping systems. However, designers of new piping systems will also find the broad coverage of potential vibration problems a time saving briefing on the variety of vibration problems that can occur in piping systems.

Becht's 4-day Implementation of ASME PCC-2 Repair of Pressure Equipment & Piping Through Case Studies training course provides an in-depth review and discussion of the ASME PCC-2 repair methods through workshop exercises and real-life examples including Part 2 Welded Repairs, Part 3 Mechanical Repairs, Part 4 Nonmetallic and Bonded Repairs, and Part 5 Examination and Testing. Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the scope, organization, and intent of ASME PCC-2 repair methods and their applications in the field.
Upon completion of this course, you will receive a certificate for attending 32 hours of professional development.
Becht is pleased to be offering this new course. The first part of this course covers the fundamental design rules, regulations, and practices for ASME III and ASME B31 piping systems in nuclear power plants. The second part of the course provides a guide for the evaluation of degraded and non-conforming conditions through case studies, using ASME XI and the corresponding NRC regulations and precedent. The course concludes with a review of repair options for safety-related and non-safety piping systems and components.
Becht's 4 day Design-By-Analysis course will introduce participants to the Design-By-Analysis portion of the ASME code Section VIII, Division 2, Part 5. Based on the rules and guidance provided in Part 5, this course is a comprehensive introduction to the requirements of performing Design-By-Analysis to the ASME Code. This course provides detailed instruction on performing finite element analysis in compliance with the Code. Examples problems are presented and discussed for many of the common rules. This course is intended for engineers who are familiar with pressure vessel and piping design, and need additional guidance on applying Design-By-Analysis concepts.
Who Should Attend? This course is intended for engineers who are familiar with pressure vessel and piping design, and need additional guidance on applying Design-By-Analysis concepts. It is also intended for engineers who specify and review Design-By-Analysis work by others. Experience in using finite element analysis will be helpful, but is not necessary.
Becht is proud to present this ASME Section VIII, Division 1 Pressure Vessel Design course with software training. Enhance your understanding of ASME Section VIII, Division 1 design rules through five days of intensive training with hands-on problem solving.

Using distillation and binary tower operation as the learning vehicle, the engineer becomes familiar with the process parameters and relationships important to proper tower operation. In this context, a methodology is built and employed which allows the engineer to understand those situations which have been previously observed – and to systematically take apart those situations which have not been seen before. This step-wise approach to unraveling the unknown – troubleshooting – will be useful and can be employed in any context: in process situations, operations, or even general problem-solving.
