can one use the ASME for (boiler and pressure vessel code ),is also contain a thermal design of boilers?

I believe the ASME B & PV code covers just the design and manufacture of the components (e.g., material selection, strength, testing, etc.)

The thermodynamics of the boiler design is not covered.

If I read you right, you are asking if anyone knows how to design a boiler for a steam engine which has 10kW electric heater of some kind.
The short answer is "yes" - designing steam engines is quite a mature field in engineering. There are an infinite number of possible designs.
Is there anything you specifically wanted to know?
