Written for the piping engineer and designer in the field, this two-part series helps to fill a void in piping literature, since the Rip Weaver books of the '90s were taken out of print at the advent of the Computer Aid Design (CAD) era. Technology may have changed, however the fundamentals of piping rules still apply in the digital representation of process piping systems. The Fundamentals of Piping Design provides the same valuable principles that Rip Weaver advocated but with the addition of support data and information necessitated by the information technology revolution in the process industry.
This first handbook covers the broad spectrum of needs for the piping engineer, including:
- Piping codes, standards and specifications
- Piping components
- Metallic materials for piping components
- Roles and responsibilities
- Project phases, such as conception phase and front-end engineering development
- Fabrication, assembly and construction
- Inspection and testing
It is vital that the piping engineer and designer not only learn how to pipe up a process using this technology but also understand and comply with the requirements of industry codes and standards. The Fundamentals of Piping Design is an introduction to the design of piping systems, various processes and the layout of pipe work connecting the major items of equipment for the new hire, the engineering student and the veteran engineer needing a reference. This must-have handbook for all piping engineers still remains a basic necessity today.
