Pressure Vessel Design
Concepts and principles
Pressurized equipment is used for many industrial processes, for example in petrochemical plants, off shore oil rigs, gas storage and control systems. In each case the pressure vessels must be carefully designed to cope with the operating temperatures and pressures. With the increasing service demands, quality requirements and safety legislation it has become vitally important for engineers to understand the fundamental principles underlying the methodologies of the design standards codes. This book provides essential background information on pressure vessel design for a wide range of pressurized components. It is written by enginners, the majority of whom serve on the British Standard Pressure Vessel Design Committee. The book derives from a series of courses and seminars run regularly in the UK and overseas by the University of Strathclyde in conjunction with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers since 1986. The scope and coverage has been developed over an extended period to meet the needs of those involved with pressure vessels as designers, fabricators, users, plant operators, inspection bodies, researchers and senior students.
