Pressure Vessel Handbook 14th Edition
This reference book is prepared for the purpose of making formulas,
technical data, design, and construction methods readily available for the
designer, detailer, layout-person and others dealing with pressure vessels.
Individuals in this industry often have difficulty finding the required data and
solutions, these being scattered throughout extensive literature or advanced
studies. The author’s aim was to bring together all of the above material under
one cover and present it in a convenient form.
The design procedures and formulas of the ASME Code for Pressure
Vessels, Section VIII Division I have been utilized, as well as, those
generally accepted sources which are not covered by this Code. From among
the alternative construction methods described by the Code, the author has
selected those which are most frequently used in practice.
