This completely revised and best-selling work is covering all latest way of analyzing different stress and creating vessels capable of surviving fatigue, shocks and high pressures, high temperatures and irradiation, as well as other hostile environments. The current release of the volume includes several new chapters dedicated to the residual stress, autofrettage vessels and influence of the Bauschinger effect, as adopted by ASME. Among the other new areas, we would mention the design of various tubular elements and tube seats, and utilization of the PWHT, standing for the post-weld heat treatment, to effect the residual stress. The text of the publication is supplemented with numerous live examples of combined creep and fatigue, providing very valuable practical help. John Harvey, the author of this book, has also discussed the matter of extending the working life of the pressure vessels, together with the effective cost cutting ways with no quality sacrificed. He has also updated the respond to the constantly increasing demand for the high strength and lightweight pressure vessels in various industries, including petroleum and chemical industries, in addition to the growing need for the vessels that could resist high pressures, for example ones expected in the subsea exploration, offshore drilling and mining of minerals. The volume will be found interesting by all engineers directly involved in the design, construction and further testing of the pressure vessels.
