and dedicated contributions of our volun‐ teers. The PVP Division is home to mem‐ bers ranging from students, to early career engineers, to senior members with decades of experience with the Division. A priority of the PVP Division is to engage students and early career engineers to participate in the activities of the Division, and in partic‐ ular to participate in the PVP Conference. They represent the future of the Division, and their ideas and energy are essential for the PVP Conference to continue to be a vibrant forum. They will have the oppor‐ tunity to interact with experienced mem‐ bers who are in industry technical leader‐ ship roles. They will find that their partici‐ pation is rewarding and will enhance their professional careers.

PVPD Professional Develop‐ ment Report (Continued from page 3) One of ASME’s most valuable assets are the relationships with the volunteers who serve on C&S committees. ASME’s policy is to aﬀord all interested persons an oppor‐ tunity to participate in the ASME C&S de‐ velopment process. Membership on a com‐ mittee normally represents you as an indi‐ vidual, rather than as a representative of your employer or another organization. The Tutorial will conclude with an open question and answer session. The early career special presentation is titled “Early Career Engineers Forum” will be presented by Mr. Artin Dermenjian. The first half of the forum will provide a brief history and background of ASME‐PVP Division activities and how involvement in ASME‐PVP will create and facilitate net‐ working and mentoring opportunities. The second half of the forum will be an interac‐ tive workshop dealing with issues that new career engineers may face in the work place.
vide a fundamental understanding of what CFD is, and how it can be used to support engineering design decisions. This will be accomplished through a 75 minute block devoted to theory/implementation. During this portion of the tutorial, the solution of the three fundamentals associated with every engineering problem ‐ continuity, momentum and turbulence ‐ will be dis‐ cussed. The tutorial will cover the implica‐ tions that the underlying mathematics have on problem formation and solution, not the actual mathematics. The primary goal is to promote the informed use of this powerful technique and inform the attendee on how to avoid some of the most common pitfalls associated with CFD analyses. The second technical tutorial is titled, “Fitness‐For‐Service (FFS) Procedures for Evaluation of Damage or Defects in Pres‐ surized Equipment using API 579‐1/ASME FFS‐1” presented by Mr. Brian Macejko . The objective of this tutorial will be to pro‐ vide a technical tutorial on a subset of the API 579‐1/ASME FFS‐1 Fitness‐For‐Service (FFS) procedures for evaluation of damage or defects in pressurized equipment. Lec‐ tures will be concentrated mostly on Level 1 and Level 2 evaluation procedures (including limitations, applicability, and acceptance criteria). This half‐day technical tutorial will be broken into two (2) parts:
The first technical tutorial is titled “The use of Computational Fluid Dynamics in De‐ sign” presented by Sean M. McGuﬃe and Anthony C. DeFilippo. The tutorial has the following description.

The PVP 2016 held in Vancouver, Canada was another very successful conference. As of the morning of Monday on July 18, 2016, a total of 1016 participants from 39 coun‐ tries were registered and attended to the PVP2016 conference. This participant number was much higher than 791 of PVP2015 held in Boston, USA with a sig‐ nificant increase of 28.5%. Statistics data for PVP2016 showed that (1) top six counties of the PVP 2016 attendees were US, Japan, Canada, UK, China and South Korea in 78.9% of the total participants, (2) North America (USA and Canada) had more than one half of the total participants (58.4%), (3) three Asian counties (Japan, China and South Korea) had one quarter of the total participants (25.5%), and (4) six major Eu‐ ropean counties (UK, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, and Belgium) had par‐ ticipants of 17% only. As a result, PVPD may need to take some steps to promote more European engineers to participate the annual PVP conference, and the future PVP conference may go to an Asian country, such as Japan, China or South Korea to attract more participants there and to pro‐ mote ASME PVP business in those coun‐ tries.

he Codes and Standards (C&S) Committee promotes the development and ex‐ change of technical infor‐ mation on current indus‐ try and research topics Russell C. Cipolla related to the C&S for pressure vessels and piping components. There are a multitude of industry consen‐ sus codes, standards, rules, and guidelines on the design, construction and fitness‐for‐ service in the world. Such International industry codes include ASME B&PV Code, API 579/ASME‐FFS, European FITNET, French Codes RCC‐M and RSE‐M, German Guideline FKM, British Standard BS 7910, R‐6 and R‐5, Chinese Code GB/T, Czech Code AME Standard, Japanese Code JSME, etc. Although the evaluation methodolo‐ gies may diﬀer, there is a need to harmo‐ nize them to obtain consistent results among these diﬀerent codes and to under‐ stand the many unique diﬀerences. To this end, the C&S Committee has supported and oﬀered opportunities to share infor‐ mation of mutual interests over the years. This has been facilitated by discussion of ideas and practices among the various in‐ ternational codes through cooperative tech‐ nical sessions at ASME PVP conferences.

The C&S main topics of interest are in the areas of design and construction criteria, integrity assessment methods, repair and mitigation technologies, in‐service inspec‐ tions and non‐destructive examinations, flaw evaluations, high temperature codes, and new criteria for code improvement. The papers in C&S contain technical docu‐ ments that describe suggested code chang‐ es and even propose new standards. We emphasize new code developments and provide a venue for publishing technical basis papers that discuss the fundamental theory and philosophy behind code evalua‐ tion procedures. The C&S Committee has become truly international in nature, bring‐ ing together people from diﬀerent coun‐ tries to exchange new technologies and to share codes and standards developments from their part of the world.

ponents. Encouraging participation in the annual ASME Pressure Vessels & Piping Conference has proven to be an eﬀective way to achieve the SETC’s chartered goal. The Committee organizes sessions covering emerging research and applications in a broad range of topics including seismic design, modeling and analysis; seismic response demand; damping and energy dissipation; seismic isolation and vibration control; seismic testing, qualification and verification; high level response of piping and vessels; seismic codes, standards and criteria; seismic damping examination and strength reinforcement; fluid and solid in‐ teraction; seismic analysis and design of liquid storage tanks and pressure vessels; seismic analysis and design of industrial piping; and structural reliability and risk assessment. For the 2016 PVP Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, the SETC developed fourteen technical sessions for nine topics, with sixty‐one technical papers and six student papers. In addition to that, we have five papers for a joint session with the Code & Standard Technical Committee. The TPR and Co‐TPR for 2016 was Prof. Fabrizio Paolacci, Roma Tre University, Italy, and Prof. Osamu Fu‐ ruya, Tokyo Denki University, Japan, re‐ spectively. The SETC met on Tuesday, July 19, 2016 in the Kensington (c) at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Twenty‐nine attendees including three PVPD senates, Mike Nitel, Jack Ware and Ismail Kisisel and ten guests. Five guests (including three young engineers) expressed their wish to participate in the next PVP conferences, and perhaps, be members of the SETC. During the meeting, two new members were elected, namely, Akihito Otani and Akemi Nishida. For the PVP 2017 Conference to be held in Waikoloa, Hawaii, USA, the SETC will de‐ velop thirteen paper sessions for eight top‐ ics. In PVP2015, all session titles were dras‐ tically renewed for attracting prospective authors in the broad range of the PVPD related seismic engineering topics. Moreo‐ ver, some challenges were made to expand our interests in the area of the Seismic Is‐ sues of Aged Plants and the Seismic Dam‐ age Assessment and Health Monitoring. (Continued on page 11)
Seismic Engineering. (Continued from page 10) All session titles and further details are available on the conference website. Seismic engineering is a crosscutting disci‐ pline that interacts with many other tech‐ nical specialties. Since the seismic issues are globally important, our membership is a truly international group that welcomes new members. This oﬀers an opportunity to meet and interact with engineers and researchers from around the world who are working in the various topics associat‐ ed with seismic engineering. I encourage all who may be interested in seismic engi‐ neering issues and desire more infor‐ mation on the activities of the PVP SETC to contact me via e‐mail at [email protected]‐u.ac.jp.
