ASME Boiler and pressure vessel code

  1. Mar 20, 2009 #1
    Does anybody knwo how calculate the required cross-sectional area of the bolts with internal pressure, according to the ASME code? I mean in wich section, appendix, whatever.
    I have spent a lot of time trying to find this and I could not. But I can´t belive that an important standard, like this, omits this so common calculation.

    thanks in advance.

    Hi gabriel,
    Have you looked through "Mandatory Appendix 2" for what you're looking for? If that doesn't meet your needs, please be more specific.

    I have just looked it. Thanks a lot.
    Do you know if the division 2 has other way for calculating the required cross-sectional area of the bolts?

    Sorry, but I'm not as familiar with Div 2, so without looking I couldn't say.
