Liquid Pipeline Hydraulicsby E. Shashi Menon
Synopses & Reviews
Liquid Pipeline Hydraulics addresses issues affecting the day-to-day practices of those who design, operate, and purchase liquid pipelines in the oil, water, and process industries. Written by a professional engineer and consultant with more than 30 years of experience in pipeline design and construction, the book Illustrates key principles in fluid mechanics without the use of complicated formulas and theorems through the author's personal experiences in the application of pipeline hydraulics. This volume supplies numerous practical examples and applications for an in-depth understanding of liquid properties, as well as the layout, assessment, and enhancement of effective pipeline systems.
Book News Annotation:
A practical handbook for engineers, technicians, and others involved in designing and operating pipelines to transport liquids, primarily in the petroleum, water, and process industries. It does however include chapter-end problems, with selected answers appended, to facilitate its use as a college textbook. Arizona-based engineering and computer consultant Menon presents liquid pipeline hydraulics as it applies to the transportation of liquids through pipelines in a single-phase, steady-state environment. He discusses such factors as various properties of liquids, the concept of pressure, friction, and calculating the energy required to transport liquid from one point to another through a pipeline. The formulas for such calculations he presents and describes without using calculus or complex mathematical methods, and certainly does not wander away from the practical aspects to explain how they are derived.
