The book will provide engineers with all information they may required when operating the hull systems including valves and piping, conducting their routine maintenance and repairs. It may definitely be treated as a very timely reference source to be used when selecting the appropriate pipes and valves and applying them. The recent decades have shown serious development in valve application.

Among them we would note the newly introduced valve designs, significantly increased use of the actuators, great attention paid to the safety and reliability of the valves and pipes, low noise technologies etc. Moreover, digital technologies are making their impact because the equipment manufacturers have started to develop the control valves now featuring control interfaces and functions. All of those developments have been duly reflected in the pages of this volume.

The materials contained in the book are arranged in several sections and the first section gives basic information on the valves including their classification and nomenclature, selection guides and explanations of piping. The second section is dealing with the design and construction of different valve types, while the next four sections address pressure valves, control and automation, pipes and pipework. the remaining sections of the publication focuses on the performance and associated calculations, engineering data, services and duties etc.
