Fitness-for-Service Evaluations for Piping and Pressure Vessels ASME Code Simplified by George Antaki

Fitness-for-Service Evaluations for Piping and Pressure Vessels ASME Code Simplified


Fitness-for-Service Evaluations for Piping and Pressure Vessels ASME Code Simplified by George Antaki

Based on some of his students most frequently asked questions, Antaki emphasizes the practical applications of this ASME recommended practice. With this book readers will understand and apply API 579 in their daily work. The material is based on the author's course and presented in clear concise manor. The book demonstrates how the disciplines of stress analysis, materials engineering, and nondestructive inspection interact and apply to fitness-for-service assessment. These assessment methods apply to pressure vessels, piping, and tanks that are in service. This makes it the perfect companion book for Ellenberger's, Pressure Vessels: ASME Code Simplified as well as Ellenberger's Piping Systems and Pipeline: ASME B31 Code Simplified.
