This paper consists of a comparative study of the primary technical, commercial, and usage differences between the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section VIII and the European Pressure Vessel Code EN13445 (EN). This study includes a review of “Comparative Study on Pressure Equipment Standards” (hereby referenced by the “EC Study”) [see REF-1] and provides technical comparisons between the code design requirements, material properties, fabrication, and contributing effects on overall cost. This study is intended to provide a broad viewpoint on the major differences and factors to consider when choosing the most appropriate vessel design code to use.
