    Hi all
    Are there is an idea to design (thermal design )the size of an small electric steam boiler if the heat input is about (10 Kw)

    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?
