The objective of this paper is to review and highlight the contributions of Dr. Sumio Yukawa in the development of rules for the prevention of non-ductile failure in the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. This includes review of his role in the development of WRC-175, Appendix G of Section III, the development of early flaw evaluation rules for carbon steel piping and in the review and evaluation of the toughness of austenitic stainless steels and nickel alloys after long-term elevated temperature exposures. The current status of these activities is briefly described.
