Pipeline Design for Water Engineers (2nd Edition)


File Size: 7.93 Mb

Description
Pipelines are being constructed in ever-increasing diameters, lengths and working pressures. Accurate and rational design bases are essential to achieve economic and safe designs. Engineers have for years resorted to semi-empirical design formulae. Much work has recently been done in an effort to rationalize the design of pipelines.

This book collates published material on rational design methods as well as presenting some new techniques and data. Although retaining conventional approaches in many instances, the aim of the book is to bring the most modern design techniques to the civil or hydraulic engineer. It is suitable as an introduction to the subject but also contains data on the most advanced techniques in the field. Because of the sound theoretical background the book will also be useful to undergraduate and post-graduate students. Many of the subjects, such as mathematical optimization, are still in their infancy and the book may provide leads for further research. The methods of solution proposed for many problems bear in mind the modern acceptance of computers and calculators and many of the graphs in the book were prepared with the assistance of computers.
