Pressure Vessel Design Manual is a solutions-focused guide to the many problems and technical challenges facing designers of pressure vessels. Intended as both an essential learning tool for the developing engineer and a handy reference for the seasoned professional, it brings together otherwise scattered information into one easy-to-use resource to minimize research and take readers from problem to solution in the most direct manner possible.
Providing a wealth of design procedures, methods, techniques, formulae and tables for use in the design of pressure vessels, their respective parts and equipment, this book offers the all-important explanation and context that regulatory documentation and data-heavy references lack, delivered in a straightforward and digestible form.
Now updated to include current ASME, ASCE and API standard information, and dual unit coverage for ease of international use, Pressure Vessel Design Manual is aimed at satisfying the needs of engineers who specify, design, operate, install, inspect or manufacture pressure vessels and related equipment in a process, chemical, civil or petroleum engineering setting.
