Companion Guide to the Asme Boiler & Pressure Vessel Codes, Fifth Edition, 2 Volume Set: Criteria and Commentary on Select Aspects of the Boiler & Pressure Vessel and Piping Codes


This fully updated and revised fifth edition of this classic reference work is current to the latest ASME BPV Code release. It is available in a convenient two-volume format that focuses on all twelve sections of the ASME Code, as well as relevant piping codes. Several chapters have new authors and are entirely new, while others have been extensively re-written for this edition.

The two-volume set, which was edited by K.R. Rao, has been completely updated to address the 2015 Boiler & Pressure Vessel (B&PV) Code, as well as topics pertinent to the most recent edition of the Boiler & Pressure Vessel (B&PV) Code, which was released in 2017.

First published by ASME Press in 2001 and regularly updated through five editions, the Companion Guide is recognized as an authoritative reference work that supports ASME’s standards publications for the benefit of the worldwide engineering community. 

The new 1,800-page guide encompasses 40 chapters — many of which are entirely new or extensively rewritten — that cover the 12 sections of the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code, as well as relevant piping codes. Each volume features a concise, easy-to-comprehend introduction outlining the contents of that volume. The guide also includes two special chapters addressing expected trends related to the Code, a comprehensive index of 8,000 Code-related items, and biographical data for the 51 B&PV Code experts who contributed to the handbook.

    Guide helps simplify locating the things you need within the ASME code. I do this daily for a living and I like having it on my phone as a quick reference. Saved big buying it here.
