Here is a truly comprehensive publication providing both piping designers and engineers with an excellent quick reference guidance to the piping-related calculations as well as standards and technical codes that would apply to the piping systems. This volume combines in one handy book the multitude of numerous piping elements like pipes themselves, flanges, valves, supporting arrangements, bolts, flex and expansion joints making up those complex piping systems. The author of the book has used so many calculations and practical examples based on his own experience of more than forty years as both the instructor and professional piping engineer. Each of the practical examples included by the author in this volume is demonstrating how different piping-related codes and standards can be applied correctly and incorrectly, so that the readers could see the difference and possible consequences of wrong application. Moreover, apart from providing the advice on the intent of the above mentioned standards and codes, this volume is also intended to provide some valuable guidance on compliance with the requirements listed therein. The reader will get quite clear understanding of the possible failures occurring to the piping systems and know what the code or standard requires the piping designers, makers, fabricators, suppliers, erectors, examiners, inspectors, and owners to do to prevent the failures...
