Advanced Piping Design
is for the piping engineer and designer in the field. This two part-series, intermediate-level handbook helps to fill a severe void in piping literature and covers guidelines and procedures on process plants and interconnecting piping systems. As a follow up to Smith's best-selling work, The Fundamentals of Piping Design, it contributes more customized information on the necessary process equipment required for a suitable plant layout, such as:
- Cooling towers
- And more!
Combining essential equipment with best practices, Botermans and Smith extend the book's benefits to incorporate:
- Instructions for laying out the plant
Applicable international codes
Piping support and stress issues
Operation and maintenance influencing piping design
- Safety precautions
While integrating equipment with all critical design considerations, these two volumes together are must-haves for any engineer continuing to learn about piping design and process equipment.
