Recent ASME Code Addenda include certain figures, tables and material related requirements in both U.S. Customary and metric units. The material related requirements deal with issues including radiography, impact testing and minimum weld sizes.
For instance, UCS-66 provides figures such as Fig. UCS-66.1 and its metric counterpart Fig. UCS-66.1M. Note that these metric versions reflect commercially available metric plate thicknesses. The ASME Code requires that consistent units be used when designing vessels and exchangers.
If you don’t have software that can fully design in metric units, it’s time to explore the benefits of COMPRESS. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (941) 927-2670.
