This three-day program offers detailed insight and thorough understanding of the most common ASME
codes, pertaining to design/ engineering and testing of the pressure vessels namely Section VIII Div. 2. This course emphasizes understanding of ‘stated’ and ‘implied’ requirements (i.e. content and intent) of the codes. The participants would be explained in detail the mechanics of adopting and applying the code rules and design formulas for different Design conditions and Services.

ASME VIII Div 2 is an alternative code which provides a better engineered vessel with detailed stresses
calculations and more rigorous testing, and allows for savings in material costs (thinner parts may be used). This course is designed to give the participants the confidence and practice for carrying out design and Fabrication and testing for new vessels and also carrying out strength calculations and assessment of integrity of existing vessels. How to adopt code rules for different types of vessels and with various service conditions will be illustrated with numerous case studies.

Important code stipulation will be reviewed and discussed collectively with participants so as to address the
difficulties and ambiguities they might have encountered during their working.
Each attendee must bring a Laptop computer with Microsoft operating system and Scientific Calculator

Mandar Mulay

Mechanical Engineer


Mandar Mulay has about 20 years hands on experience in design and integrity assessment of Piping Systems, Reactors & Storage Tanks, Pressure Vessels, Power Boiler, and Heat Exchanger. He is well conversant with the major industry codes & standards such as ASME Sec. I, ASME B 31.1, B31.3 , B31.4 and B31.8, ASME Sec VIII, BS-5500, TEMA, API -650, IS 803, API 579, ASME PCC-2 etc.

Major projects closely associated with, in his professional career so far are, Qatar Chemicals, Shell, Castrol India, Reliance Industries, Cargill Foods USA, etc. His proficiency in Power Boiler, Piping and Pressure Vessel Codes enables him to trace the similarities and differences of these codes. He also actively involved as Instructor for programs on the subjects of ASME codes, Integrity Assessment, Fitness for Service, etc.

Along with his career in Engineering and Design Department in a multinational company at a very senior post for the last 20 years, he is also visiting faculty to a well known Engineering College in India for their P.G. Courses in Piping Design and Engineering

Apart from being visiting faculty, He has also conducted several Training Courses ( ASME Sec. I, ASME Sec. VIII, ASME B 31.3 Piping Codes , API 579 FFS code, ASME PCC-2 Repair practices, and Heat Exchanger Design Operations & Maintenance ) in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and UAE for engineers from companies like Saudi Aramco, SABIC group of Companies, Qatar Petroleum, ADNOC, BAPCO, DEWA, Gulf Petrochemicals etc. He has already conducted many times the training courses in API 579, where the participants rated him “Excellent” for these courses.
