Pressure vessels are found everywhere -- from basement boilers to gasoline tankers -- and their usefulness is surpassed only by the hazardous consequences if they are not properly constructed and maintained. This essential reference guides mechanical engineers and technicians through the maze of the continually updated International Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes that govern safety, design, fabrication, and inspection. * 30% new information including coverage of the recent ASME B31.3 code

Based on some of his students most frequently asked questions, Antaki emphasizes the practical applications of this ASME recommended practice. With this book readers will understand and apply API 579 in their daily work. The material is based on the author’s course and presented in clear concise manor. The book demonstrates how the disciplines of stress analysis, materials engineering, and nondestructive inspection interact and apply to fitness-for-service assessment. These assessment methods apply to pressure vessels, piping, and tanks that are in service. This makes it the perfect companion book for Ellenberger’s, Pressure Vessels: ASME Code Simplified as well as Ellenberger’s Piping Systems and Pipeline: ASME B31 Code Simplified.

ASME Code for Power Boilers Simplified! Now there's a quick, easy way to make sense of one of the industry's most widely used regulatory documents: The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. The ASME Code Simplified: Power Boilers, by Dyer D. Carroll and Dyer E. Carroll, Jr., clarifies every aspect of Section 1 of the Code plus its latest updates. You get dozens of real-world examples that help you apply the Code to the design, fabrication, repair, inspection and testing of all types of power boilers. Much more than just a Code ``decoder,'' it packs easy-to-follow procedures for obtaining ``S'' and ``R'' stamps plus scores of sample problems, questions and answers that help you prepare for the National Boiler and Pressure Vessel Board as well as ``A'' and ``B'' endorsement exams. You get instant access to the latest requirements for: Cylindrical components under both internal and external pressure; Formed heads; Braced and stayed surfaces; Reinforced openings in heads and shells; Appurtenances and appliances; Much more.

The majority of the cost-savings for any oil production facility is the prevention of failure in the production equipment such as pressure vessels. Money lost through lost production far outweighs expenses associated with maintenance and proper operation. However, many new engineers lack the necessary skills to effectively find and troubleshoot operating problems while experienced engineers lack knowledge of the latest codes and standards. The fifth book in the Field Manual Series, the Pressure Vessel Operations Field Manual provides new and experienced engineers with the latest tools to alter, repair and re-rate pressure vessels using ASME, NBIC and API 510 codes and standards. Step-by-step procedure on how to design, perform in-shop and in-field inspections and repairs, perform alterations and re-rate a pressure vessel How to select the appropriate vessel specifications, evaluate associated reports and determine allowable stresses Calculations for stresses in pressure vessels Select the appropriate materials of construction for a pressure vessel Design pressure vessels using the ASME Code Section VIII, Division 1 and 2 to best fit the circumstance

The Piping Systems & Pipeline Code establishes rules of the design, inspection, maintenance and repair of piping systems and pipelines throughout the world. The objective of the rules is to provide a margin for deterioration in service. Advancements in design and material and the evidence of experience are constantly being added by Addenda. Based on a popular course taught by author and conducted by the ASME, this book will center on the on the practical aspects of piping and pipeline design, integrity, maintenance and repair. This book will cover such topics as: inspection techniques, from the most common (PT, MT, UT, RT, MFL pigs) to most recent (AE, PED, UT pigs and multi pigs), the implementation of integrity management programs, periodic inspections and evaluation of results
