Still the only ebook offering comprehensive coverage of the analysis and design of both API equipment and ASME pressure vessels. This Structural Analysis and Design of Process Equipment 3rd edition (PDF) of the classic guide to the analysis and design of process equipment has been thoroughly updated to reflect current practices as well as the latest ASME Codes and API standards. In addition to covering the code requirements governing the design of process equipment; the ebook supplies mechanical; structural; and chemical engineers with expert guidance to the analysis and design of heat exchangers; storage tanks; boilers; pressure vessels; and related process equipment and its associated external and internal components.

The use of process equipment; such as pressure vessels; storage tanks; and heat exchangers has expanded considerably over the last few decades in both the petroleum and chemical industries. The extremely high pressures and temperatures involved with the processes for which the equipment is designed makes it potentially very dangerous to property and life if the equipment is not designed and manufactured to an exacting standard. Accordingly; codes and standards such as the ASME and API were written to assure safety. Still; the only guide covering the design of both API equipment and ASME pressure vessels; Structural Analysis and Design of Process Equipment; 3rd Edition:

  • Relates the requirements of the ASME codes to international standards
  • Now includes numerical vibration analysis needed for earthquake evaluation
  • Contains procedures for calculating thermal stresses and discontinuity analysis of various components
  • Covers the design of rectangular vessels with various side thicknesses and updated equations for the design of heat exchangers
  • Describes; in detail; the background and assumptions made in deriving many design equations underpinning the API and ASME standards
  • Includes methods for designing components that are not covered in either the API or ASME; including leg supports; ring girders; and internal components

Structural Analysis and Design of Process Equipment; 3rd Edition is an indispensable tool-of-the-trade for mechanical engineers and chemical engineers working in the chemical and petroleum industries; manufacturing; as well as plant engineers in need of a reference for process equipment petrochemical facilities; in power plants; and nuclear facilities.
