Power Boilers, Section I of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, provides rules for the construction of power boilers, but since it is neither a textbook nor a design handbook, its rules are accompanied by very little explanation. The objective of this chapter is to provide an overview of Section I rules, their intent, and how they are applied and enforced.
This chapter is an abbreviated version of the book Power Boilers, A Guide to Section I of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code . That comprehensive guide was used as the textbook for a two-day ASME Professional Development Department course on Section I, developed and taught by Martin D. Bernstein and Lloyd Yoder. The Second Edition  of the book, Power Boilers, A Guide to Section I of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code was published in May 2011. After a 10 year hiatus the ASME Professional Development course on Section I has been reinstated and scheduled for early in 2012. The course instructor, Robert G. McLaughlin, Vice-Chairman of BPVI, will be using the second edition of The Power Boiler Guide Book as the text book for this ASME Professional Development course.
