RE: ASME Code and lifting lugs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

ASME code, Division 1 has over 1000 pages and does not have anything on
lugs.  The attachment loads for the lugs are usually covered under Division

There are several handbooks that treat lifting lugs on pressure vessels.
Pressure Vessel Design Handbook, Bednar
Pressure vessel handbook, Megyesy
Both can be purchased for a sum much less that one division of ASME.

Subject: ASME Code and lifting lugs

I need to design some lifting lugs for a vessel and the drawings say that
the lifting lug design must be in accordance with ASME Code Section VIII
Division 1.  I do not have this code, but will be ordering it if I find that
it would be worthwhile and can afford it.  In the meantime, if this is not
too many pages, would one of you be willing to fax me this section?  In
order to avoid getting multiple faxes, I will send another post to the list
once I receive a copy.

Thanks in advance,
