Overview

Keeping pace with a fast growing industry, this invaluable study presents timely information on the basic design principles of high pressure vessels. There is a pronounced interest in the use of high pressure technology in industries such as petrochemical, isostatic pressing, deep sea drilling and simulation, deep diving submersibles, cultured crystal growth, water jet cutting, food sterilizing, supercritical extraction, and others. Offering in-depth coverage of the parameters of materials and design concepts, High Pressure Vessels also addresses the cyclic fatigue environment including autofrettage and the size, growth, and arrest of cracks, as well as novel high pressure chamber construction and closures. In addition, numerous examples, original data, a glossary of terms, SI conversions, and a list of references are provided. Presented in an easy-to-follow format, this comprehensive text responds to the need for assistance in the design, application, and safety aspects of high pressure vessels for students and engineers new in the field of high pressure. It also serves as a guide for plant engineers and facilities managers responsible for operating such vessels. The book is intended to be compatible with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers High Pressure Systems Standard, HPS-1994, and the Boiler and Pressure Vessels Code, Section VIII, Division 3.
