Important Industry News:  B31J 2017

The ASME B31 Committees recently officially released the new Standard making B31J – 2017 available and part of the B.31 Code.  This is a fundamental transformation for pressure vessel and piping design, and will impact virtually every PVP design project in the future.  B31J marks the first major improvement in the treatment of SIFs, k-factors, and SSIs in the Code in the last 40+ years.  Implementation of this new approach will result in more accurate designs and a reduction in costs related to design, construction, and lifecycle maintenance of a plant, while simultaneously improving safety.
