Important Industry News – B31J – 2017

Q3 2017 Company Updates & Announcement

Important Industry News – B31J – 2017

The ASME B31 Committees recently officially released the new Standard we refer to as “B31J – 2017”. This officially makes B31J – 2017 available and part of the B.31 Code. This is a fundamental transformation for pressure vessel and piping design, and it will impact virtually every PVP design project in the future. B31J marks the first major improvement in the treatement of SIFs, k-factors, and SSIs in the Code in the last 40+ years. For those who take the time to understand and implement this new approach, more accurate designs, a reduction in costs related to design, construction, and lifecycle maintenance of a plant, and a simultaneous improvement in safety will be possible.

To see a joint Webinar put on between PRG and Intergraph on this subject, on September 6, 2017, please see the following announcement by Intergraph by clicking HERE.

Paulin Research Group May 6, 2015 -Presentation by a large US government agency

Paulin Research Group May 6, 2015 –

Tony Paulin Jr., President of PRG, gave a full day lecture and training seminar to the pressure systems engineering managers of a large US government agency.
This presentation showed how PRG’s FEA technology can be used to quickly and easily improve the safety of a system while simultaneously reducing “over-design”.

Are you having trouble with a component that falls outside the limits of the B31 Codes, WRC-107, or WRC-297?

Do the “allowable loads” for your design seem suspiciously low?

With PRG Software,we can help!
