Part 2, Section II—Materials and Specifications

Excerpt

The first (1914) edition of Rules for the Construction of Stationary Boilers and for Allowable Working Pressures was adopted in the spring of 1915. The book consisted of 114 pages, of which 35 pages—the first 178 paragraphs—were dedicated to materials. Part I of the 1914 edition was dedicated to Section I (Power Boilers). Material specifications were provided in Section I for important materials used in the construction of boilers. Only riveted construction was permitted; the specifications included the materials permitted for rivets. The material requirement was that the rivets be made of steel or iron and be manufactured to specifications written specifically for boiler–rivet steel or iron. It should be noted that fusion-welded construction for pressure-boundary parts was not permitted until the 1931 Edition of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel (B&PV) Code was published.
