Revise current ANS: ASME A112.4.4 - 20XX, Plastic Push-Fit Drain, Waste, and Vent (DWV) Fittings

Angel L. Guzman Rodriguez 12/13/18
This Standard covers reversible push-fit drain, waste,
and vent (DWV) fittings intended for quick assembly of IPS Schedule 40 series PVC and ABS DWV plastic pipe and fittings for applications above- and belowground at
temperatures from 32°F to 140°F (0°C to 60°C), and specifies requirements for materials, physical characteristics, performance testing, and markings.

Revise current ANS: ASME A13.1-2015 - 20XX, Scheme for the Identification of Piping Systems

Riad Mohamed 12/13/18
ASME A13.1 establishes a common system to assist in identification of hazardous materials conveyed in piping systems and their hazards when released in the environment.

Create a new American National Standard (ANS): ASME B31W - 20XX, Standard Method for Evaluation of the Design of Rectangular Cross Section Attachments on ASME B31 Piping Codes

Justin Wu 12/13/18
The ASME B31 Code for Pressure Piping consists of a number of individually published Sections and Standards, each an American National Standard, under the direction of the ASME Committee B31, Code for Pressure Piping. The Standard, “B31W Standard Method for Evaluation of the Design of Rectangular Cross Section Attachments on ASME B31 Piping Codes” will provide a standardized procedure to determine the effect of the rectangular attachments to above ground pipe systems. The standard will apply to above ground metallic piping systems in the scope of the ASME B31 Code for Pressure Piping (B31.1, B31.3, B31.4, B31.5, B31.8, B31.9, B31.11). The requirements described in this Standard are valid when the piping system complies with the materials, design, fabrication, examination, testing, and inspection requirements of the applicable ASME B31 Code section. Of primary concern, damages to piping systems and pipelines due to integral attachments to the piping system without a consistent approach continue to occur. Design guidance and clear explanations and understanding are required for rectangular attachment to the piping systems and will be provided in this document.

Revise current ANS: ASME Y14.8 - 20XX, Castings, Forgings and Molded Parts

Fred Constantino 12/13/18
This Standard covers definitions of terms and features unique to casting, forging and molded part technologies with recommendations for their uniform specification on engineering drawings or models and related documentation.
