The ASME code has to be adopted by each state in order to become law. Once it becomes law it shall be available to the public. Hence With the age of the internet it is now available on line and you can download a copy. However all the information you need (other sections of the code) are not available yet.

Addition information required such as;

Allowable Stresses are found in Section II part D

Material Specifications are found in Section II part A Note, some piping requires a manufacturing tolerance to be deducted from the nominal thickness before using it in calculations.
