This comprehensive course covers the design and fabrication of components for nuclear facilities per the requirements of Section III of the ASME B&PV Code. The course identifies the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s (NRC) regulations that tie the ASME B&PV Code Section III to the federal laws. The history and description of NCA of Section III are detailed so participants can understand the origin and development of Section III over time. Material selection and application, per Part D of Section II, to the design and fabrication of nuclear facility components are outlined with case studies. This allows participants to apply the concepts learned in class to real-world scenarios. Other important topics, such as Design requirements, Design Specification requirements and Design report are discussed in detail. Stress Analysis examples to meet Section III requirements are explored for design by analysis situations. This will help you apply the Code requirements to develop fabrication specifications.

You Will Learn To
- Apply USNRC criteria (Reg. Guide 1.26) for Classification of Nuclear Systems and develop lists for different Nuclear Classes
- Link Sections III, II and NCA-3800 for material selection for design of pressure boundary components and welding consumables for fabrication
- Develop Design Specifications in compliance with Appendix B of the ASME B&PV code for issuing to vendors for the design of pressure boundary components and piping systems
- Perform Stress Classifications as primary, secondary and Peak for comparing against the allowable in design by analysis
- Perform piping system design (flexibility analysis) per NX-3600 of the Code
- Issue fabrication Technical Specifications to vendors in compliance with NX-4000 of the Code
