Piping and Pipeline Engineeringby George Antaki
Synopses & Reviews
Offering the fundamental information for successful piping and pipeline engineering, this book pairs real world practice with the underlying technical principles in materials, design, construction, inspection, testing, and maintenance. It covers codes and standards, design analysis, welding and inspection, corrosion mechanisms, fitness-for-service and failure analysis, and an overview of valve selection and application. This volume features the technical basis of piping and pipeline code design rules for normal operating conditions and occasional loads and addresses the fundamental principles of materials, design, fabrication, testing and corrosion, and their effect on system integrity.
Book News Annotation:
Writing for engineers dealing professionally with plant piping systems, pipelines in utilities and chemical process industries, and oil and gas pipelines, Antaki (Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers) presents the fundamentals of pipe engineering and describes some of the calculations and techniques used in making decisions. Chapters cover (U.S.) standards and codes, material characteristics and properties, mechanical design and integrity, shop fabrication and field erection, corrosion and degradation, and inspection practices.
