There are occasions when an Inspector must check calculations to fulfill their inspection responsibilities in accordance with Code. This may involve math concepts that go beyond the substitution of variables into simple equations.

Trigonometry and Other Math Concepts Used in ASME Code Calculations is an online course designed to assist students in learning the fundamentals of calculating more advanced mathematical concepts. It is important to understand these fundamental concepts in order to perform or verify the accuracy of calculations required by industry codes and standards.

Learning Outcomes
After completing this course, students will be able to:  

  • Use trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions to solve Code-related equations.
  • Explain numbers to powers and Euler's number.
  • Use logarithms in Code-related equationsdefine the meaning of key words used in the Code, such as: shall, will, should, may, can.
  • Find the correct value in minimum/maximum functions.
  • Explain how interpolation is used in Code-related functions.

Reference Materials
Each student is required to have a scientific calculator, pencil, and paper.

Additionally, reference is made to ASME Sections I and VIII Div. 1 throughout the course, however these books are not required to complete this course

Note: ASME Code and Standards may be ordered through the ASME Web site.
