UPON REQUEST CSA N285.0 & ASME Section III Class 1 Requirements as Applied to Design Report/Stress Analysis Report

This course will introduce basic concepts of and practices of ASME Code Section III Sub-sections NB,NF; and Standards CSA N285.0 and CSA N289.3 requirements pertinent to the analysis for the preparation of Design Report/Analysis Report. Background and basic requirements will be discussed in the class and the participants will have the opportunity to discuss the basic elements of various Clauses associated with the stress analysis of pressure boundary components.

The course will cover the basic concepts and requirements for the analysis of components. An overview of the analysis process will be provided and relationship between the analysis results and meeting the Standard or the Code will be discussed.

Duration: Delivered over two(2) full-days or four (4) half-days
