Book Description

13 Dec 2012
Pressure vessels are closed containers designed to hold gases or liquids at a pressure substantially different from the ambient pressure. They have a variety of applications in industry, including in oil refineries, nuclear reactors, vehicle airbrake reservoirs, and more. The pressure differential with such vessels is dangerous, and due to the risk of accident and fatality around their use, the design, manufacture, operation and inspection of pressure vessels is regulated by engineering authorities and guided by legal codes and standards. Pressure Vessel Design Manual is a solutions-focused guide to the many problems and technical challenges involved in the design of pressure vessels to match stringent standards and codes. It brings together otherwise scattered information and explanations into one easy-to-use resource to minimize research and take readers from problem to solution in the most direct manner possible. * Covers almost all problems that a working pressure vessel designer can expect to face, with 50+ step-by-step design procedures including a wealth of equations, explanations and data* Internationally recognized, widely referenced and trusted, with 20+ years of use in over 30 countries making it an accepted industry standard guide* Now revised with up-to-date ASME, ASCE and API regulatory code information, and dual unit coverage for increased ease of international use

4.0 out of 5 stars great resource 28 April 2014
By Johnny in Texas - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you build pressure vessels for a living, this is a great resource. I design heat exchangers for a major firm and this book has been invaluable for resolving some design issues that are not otherwise addressed in the code or in our company manuals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for pressure vessel engineers 28 Jun 2014
By Martian Soldier - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is excellent and has much more than the previous editions. It is very helpful and has a lot of old school vessel design calculations for parts that cannot be designed by the usual vessel software.
5.0 out of 5 stars It really is one of the best. 14 Mar 2014

Many thanks for Mr Moss and his team.
This book is one of the best regarding with this field. I should say that this is a must to be able to understand ASME BPVC Sec.VIII in a better and quick way. Contains more effective data. I seriously reccommend this book to all engineers dealing with design and operation of pressure vessels. According to my opinion, it would be better if book could have contained some more examples regarding with pressure relieve devices and necessary calculations for site and operation engineers. Because in the code, presssure relieving is the only section which should also be used by the production engineers during operation of the plant equipments.
Best regards.
