Piping and Pipeline Engineering (Design, Construction, Maintenance, Integrity, and Repair)




File Size: 4.10 Mb

Description
This book is written to present in sequence, and in a way that balances practice and theory, the fundamental principles in materials, design, fabrication, inspection, testing, operation, maintenance and integrity of plant piping systems and pipelines.

The book is intended for designers, construction engineers and inspectors, project engineers, system and maintenance engineers. It applies to plant piping systems and pipelines in power, utilities, waterworks, and chemical process industries, as well as oil and gas pipelines.

I wrote this book with two objectives in mind: first, to convey the big picture, the fundamental qualitative steps to any successful piping and pipeline activity, whether it is a routine maintenance work package, or a new multi-million dollar project. The second objective is to explain the quantitative details, calculations and techniques essential in supporting competent decisions.

Over the years, each industry has developed expertise and technology to resolve its unique challenges. Yet, the fundamental engineering concepts (materials, design, construction and integrity) are the same, and much is to be gained by understanding how different industries approach and resolve similar problems. That is why the book covers both piping systems and pipelines.
