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.
