Overview

Examines the design of pressure vessel components according to the requirements of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code and the BS 5500 Explains all aspects of the ASME Code and addresses the equations and procedures for designing the different parts of pressure vessels. Covers the basic theories or principles behind the stress limiting conditions in the code Illustrates discussions with comprehensive case studies Includes problems and solutions in every chapter Despite the importance of pressure vessels and the high interest of mechanical and chemical engineers, there are very few books on the subject, and none that adequately address ASME and other international code issues. Pressure Vessels: Design and Practice fills that gap. With emphasis on the requirements of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, the BS 5500 (British Standard), it examines the design of pressure vessel components with explanations that clearly communicate the inherent design principles and philosophy. Chapters cover stress, shells, covers and flanges, and vessel supports and provide reviews of fatigue and fracture mechanics, structural stability, and limit analysis.
