ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC

The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) is an American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standard that provides rules for the design, fabrication, and inspection of boilers and pressure vessels. A pressure component designed and fabricated in accordance with this standard will have a long, useful service life, and one that ensures the protection of human life and property. Volunteers, who are nominated to its committees based on their technical expertise and on their ability to contribute to the writing, revising, interpreting, and administering of the document, write the BPVC Code Sections LIST OF SECTIONS 1) ASME BPVC Section I - Rules for Construction of Power Boilers 2) ASME BPVC Section II - Materials a) Part A - Ferrous Material Specifications b) Part B - Nonferrous Material Specifications c) Part C - Specifications for Welding Rods, Electrodes, and Filler Metals d) Part D - Properties (Customary) e) Part D - Properties (Metric) 3) ASME BPVC Section III - Rules for Construction of Nuclear Facility Components a) Subsection NCA - General Requirements for Division 1 and Division 2 b) Division 1 i) Subsection NB - Class 1 Components ii) Subsection NC - Class 2 Components iii) Subsection ND - Class 3 Components iv) Subsection NE - Class MC Components v) Subsection NF - Supports vi) Subsection NG - Core Support Structures vii) Subsection NH - Class 1 Components in Elevated Temperature Service viii) Appendices c) Division 2 - Code for Concrete Containments d) Division 3 - Containments for Transportation and Storage of Spent Nuclear Fuel and High Level Radioactive Material and Waste 4) ASME BPVC Section IV - Rules for Construction of Heating Boilers 5) ASME BPVC Section V - Nondestructive Examination 6) ASME BPVC Section VI - Recommended Rules for the Care and Operation of Heating Boilers 7) ASME BPVC Section VII - Recommended Guidelines for the Care of Power Boilers 8) ASME BPVC Section VIII - Rules for Construction of Pressure Vessels a) Division 1
