Booknews
Demand for high-strength/lightweight vessels that tolerate high pressures and temperatures is increasing in today's chemical, petroleum, and metallurgical industries. This updated edition offers explanation of the design-by-analysis theories and practices that form the basis of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers codes. It shows how to analyze primary and secondary stresses in pressure vessels, and how to design vessels that can cope with extreme fatigue, embrittlement, irradiation, corrosion, thermal and mechanical shock, creep, brittle fracture, and crack growth in hostile environments.
