Numerous revisions, updates and advances have been incorporated in the ASME Section VIII Code on “Pressure Vessels.” All of them have been published in “Mechanical Engineering” as required by ANSI accredited organization procedures and a few have also been the subject of specific technical papers. The objectives of this paper is not the duplication of these already published works but rather a highlighting of the more significant or, in some cases, subtle revisions that have been incorporated in Section VIII since the 1974 edition. By way of introduction, the basic design philosophies of Division 1 and 2 are also outlined.
