A BRIEF DISCUSSION ON ASME SECTION VIII DIVISIONS 1 AND 2 AND THE NEW DIVISION 3 K.T.Lau, Ph.D., P.Eng., 3rd Annual Pressure Industry Conference, Banff, Alberta, Canada, February 1999. Last Update - October, 2000

Section VIII Division 1

Section VIII Division 2

Section VIII Division 3

"Unfired" Pressure Vessel Rules < 1940

Alternative Rules 1968

Alternative Rules for High Pressure 1997

Normally up to 3000 psig

No limits either way, usually 600+ psig

No limit; Normally from 10,000 psig


General, Construction Type & Material U, UG, UW, UF, UB, UCS, UNF, UCI, UCL, UCD, UHT, ULT

General, Material, Design, Fabrication and others AG, AM, AD, AF, AR, AI, AT, AS

Similar to Division 2 KG, KM, KD, KF, KR, KE, KT, KS

Design Factor

Design Factor 3.5 on tensile (4* used previously) and other yield and temperature considerations

Design Factor of 3 on tensile (lower factor under reviewed) and other yield and temperature considerations

Yield based with reduction factor for yield to tensile ratio less than 0.7

Design Rules

Membrane - Maximum stress Generally Elastic analysis Very detailed design rules with Quality (joint efficiency) Factors. Little stress alaysis required; pure membrane without consideration of discontinuities controlling stress concentration to a safety factor of 3.5 or higher

Shell of Revolution - Max. shear stress Generally Elastic analysis Membrane + Bending. Fairly detailed design rules. In addition to the design rules, discontinuities, fatigue and other stress analysis considerations may be required unless exempted and guidance provided for in Appendix 4, 5 and 6

Maximum shear stress Elastic/Plastic Analyses and more. Some design rules provided; Fatigue analysis required; Fracture mechanics evaluation required unless proven leakbefore-burst, Residual stresses become significant and maybe positive factors (e.g. autofrettage)

Normally not required

Introduced and may be required

Experimental design verification but may be exempted

More restrictions on materials; impact required in general with similar rules as Division 1

Even more restrictive than Division 2 with different requirements.Fracture toughness testing requirement for fracture mechanics evaluation Crack tip opening displacement (CTOD) testing and establishment of KIc and/or JIc values

Published Pressure Limits

Experimental Stress Analysis

Material and Impact Testing

Few restrictions on materials; Impact required unless exempted; extensive exemptions under UG-20, UCS 66/67

NDE Requirements

NDE requirements may be exempted through increased design factor

Welding and fabrication

Page 1 of 2

Different types with butt welds and others

More stringent NDE requirements; Even more restrictive than Division 2; extensive use of RT as well as UT, MT and UT used for all butt welds, RT otherwise, PT. extensive use of PT and MT Extensive use/requirement of butt welds and full penetration welds including nonpressure attachment welds

Butt Welds and extensive use of other construction methods such as threaded, layered, wire-wound, interlocking stripwound and others

Professional Engineer Certification Safety Relief Valve

User or designated agent to provide specifications (see U-2(a))

User's Design Specification with detailed design requirements (see AG-301.1) include AD 160 for fatigue evaluation

User’s Design Specification with more specific details (see KG-310) including contained fluid data, etc with useful operation life expected and others. Designer defined

Manufacturer to declare compliance in data report

Manufacturer's Design Report certifying design specification and code compliance in addition to data report

Same as Division 2

Normally not required

Professional Engineers' Certification of Same as Division 2 but the Professional User's Design Specification as well as Engineer shall be experienced in high Manufacturer's Design Report pressure vessel design and shall not sign Professional Engineer shall be experienced for both User and Manufacturer in pressure vessel design

UV Stamp

UV Stamp

UV3 Stamp

Code Stamp and Marking

U Stamp with Addition markings including W, P, B, RES; L, UB, DF; RT, HT

U2 Stamp with Additional marking including HT

U3 Stamp with additional marking denoting construction type; HT, PS, WL, M, F, W, UQT, WW, SW

Hydrostatic Test

1.3 (Was 1.5 before the use of the 3.5 Design Factor in the 1999 Addenda)


1.25 (may be exempted for autofrettaged vessels)

* In 1998, Code Cases 2278 and 2290 for ASME Section VIII Division 1 allowed for alternative maximum allowable design stresses based on a a factor of 3.5 under certain provisions instead of a factor of 4 used by the Code. These code cases were incorporated into the Code in 1999.

Common Features Jurisdiction may have requirements in addition to Code Mandatory Manufacturer's Quality Control System Implementation and Audit Requirements Code Stamp Authorization through ASME Accreditation and Authorization Authorized Inspection Agency in accordance with QAI Authorized Inspector with Jurisdictional approval and certification Manufacturer being held accountable for Code Stamp Application and full Code Compliance NDE Personnel to SNT-TC-1A Note: This brief comparative table is presented for discussion and does not represent the opinion of the ABSA, the ASME or the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Committees. Readers are advised to consult with the ASME Code Section VIII Divisions 1, 2 & 3 for details
