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.
