Purpose and Scope:

The Journal of Pressure Vessel Technology is the premier publication for the highest-quality research and interpretive reports on the design, analysis, fabrication, construction, inspection, operation, and failure prevention of pressure vessels, piping, pipelines, power and heating boilers, pumps, valves, and other pressure-bearing components, as well as the nondestructive evaluation of critical components in mechanical engineering applications. Not only does the Journal cover all topics dealing with the design and analysis of pressure vessels, piping, and components but it also contains discussions of their related codes and standards.


Applicable pressure technology areas of interest include dynamic and seismic analysis; equipment qualification; fabrication; fatigue and fracture prediction; finite and boundary element methods; fluid-structure interaction; high pressure engineering; elevated temperature analysis and design; inelastic analysis; life extension; lifeline earthquake engineering; PVP materials and their property databases; NDE; safety and reliability; and verification and qualification of software.
