High Pressure Vessels is the only book to present timely information on high pressure vessel design for student engineers, mechanical and chemical engineers who design and build these vessels, and for chemical engineers, plant engineers and facilities managers who use them. It concentrates on design issues, giving the reader comprehensive coverage of the design aspects of the ASME High Pressure System Standard and the forthcoming ASME High Pressure Vessel Code. Coverage of the safety requirements of these new standards is included, as well as offering the reader examples and original data, a glossary of terms, SI conversions, and lists of references.

A pressure vessel is a container that holds a liquid, vapor, or gas at a different pressure other than atmospheric pressure at the same elevation. More specifically in this instance, a pressure vessel is used to 'distill'/'crack' crude material taken from the ground (petroleum, etc.) and output a finer quality product that will eventually become gas, plastics, etc. This book is an accumulation of design procedures, methods, techniques, formulations, and data for use in the design of pressure vessels, their respective parts and equipment. The book has broad applications to chemical, civil and petroleum engineers, who construct, install or operate process facilities, and would also be an invaluable tool for those who inspect the manufacturing of pressure vessels or review designs. * ASME standards and guidelines (such as the method for determining the Minimum Design Metal Temperature)are impenetrable and expensive: avoid both problems with this expert guide. * Visual aids walk the designer through the multifaceted stages of analysis and design. * Includes the latest procedures to use as tools in solving design issues.

This study involved the evaluation of Acoustic Emission (AE) parameters at high temperatures and examines the validity and applicability of the current AE acceptance criteria for inspecting pressure vessels at these temperatures. The study consisted of internal pressure tests under static loads on filament wound Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) pipe specimens. These specimens were manufactured using four different resins having different extensions to failure. Two test temperatures, 140°F and 190°F were selected for testing. Results indicated AE may be used as an effective tool for testing FRP pressure vessels at high temperature under internal pressure loading. The results also indicated that the current AE acceptance criteria was effective in inspecting these specimens at high temperatures. AE monitoring was also effective in indicating creep at these temperatures. The Large amplitude hits criterion was ineffective in indicating damage at high temperatures as shown by the relative absence of these events at high temperatures as compared to ambient. Results also indicated that as the temperature increases the load at the onset of significant emission decreases. AE was also effective in predicting damage as was seen from the low values of Felicity Ratio calculated.

With very few books adequately addressing ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code, and other international code issues, Pressure Vessels: Design and Practice provides a comprehensive, in-depth guide on everything engineers need to know. With emphasis on the requirements of the ASME this consummate work examines the design of pressure vessel components with explanations that clearly emphasize the inherent design principles and philosophy. Chapters thoroughly cover stresses in shells, covers and flanges, vessel supports, and includes reviews of fatigue and fracture mechanics, structural stability, and limit analysis. With equations and procedures for designing the main parts of pressure vessels, this volume is a convenient resource and reference. Pressure Vessels: Design and Practice covers the basic theories and principles behind the stress limiting conditions in the codes. It is also a practical guide for designing and building pressure vessels of all types. Not just a 'cookbook,' this volume allows you to trace the origin of the design equations used in the construction codes, offering a valuable, physical insight into the design process.
