The fully updated and revised fourth edition of this classic reference work is current to the ASME BPV Code 2011 Addenda. The fourth edition is being released individually and in a convenient two-volume format that focuses on all twelve sections of the ASME Code, as well as relevant piping codes. Several chapters have new authors and are entirely new, while others have been extensively re-written for this edition.
This comprehensive handbook discusses the need to design safety into a job at the start, rather than by retrofitting. Safety, health, and environmental concerns can be designed and built into products, rather than addressed after those products have been put into operation. This book will show you how to give each level of engineering a share of the responsibiity for building safety into the job, right through the production phase. In addition, you'll learn how responsibility extends to product design, plant layout, and condition of premises, selection, and specification of materials, production planning, and duties of managers and employees. Safety Through Design is an important new volume addressing the leading edge in safety theory and implementation. This manual is a must read for design and manufacturing engineers, managers, and safety professionals.
This expanded second edition of our reference book contains over 100 new pages, including extensive coverage of Section VIII of the ASME Pressure Vessel Code. Divided into 22 sections, this pocket-sized volume is a "quick reference" of up-to-date engineering data and rules.
This "hands on" guide has been written for all levels of manufacturing professionals responsible for providing a competitive advantage in their use of deburring and edge finishing methods. Five basic approaches for achieving cost reduction in deburring are offered: product design, tool design, process design, burr prevention and minimization, and burr removal. Discussions of cost/quality trade offs are integrated throughout the in depth technical treatments of approximately 100 mechanical, thermal, chemical, electrical, and manual procedures. Also included are some newer techniques from emerging industrial countries; considerations of current environmental and safety issues; and discussion of international industrial standards and guidelines for establishing plant specific deburring standards.
Proceedings of the 2011 3rd International Conference on Computer Technology and Development (ICCTD 2011) held in Chengdu, China during November 25-27, 2011. The aim objective of ICCTD 2011 is to provide a platform for researchers, engineers, academicians as well as industrial professionals from all over the world to present their research results and development activities in Computer Technology and Development . This conference provides opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration.
This is an easy-to-read collection featuring ASME Piping & Pressure Vessel Code applications. It provides the essential benefits of instruction by a personal mentor who explains the whys and hows while teaching potentially dangerous lessons in physics and engineering design. Spared the embarrassment of painful mistakes, both early-career and experienced engineers will gain practical knowledge from frank, colorful cases and learn to solve a variety of mechanical problems, including pipe stress and strain, structural supports, pressure vessels, jacketed pipes, bellows-type expansion joints, process piping.
Fully updated for the 2008 Edition of the ASME B31.3 Code, this third edition provides background information, historical perspective, and expert commentary on the ASME B31.3 Code requirements for process piping design and construction. It provides the most complete coverage of the Code that is available today and is packed with additional information useful to those responsible for the design and mechanical integrity of process piping. The author is a long-serving member, and present chairman, of the ASME B31.3, Process Piping Code committee. Dr. Becht explains the principal intentions of the Code, covering the content of each of the Code's chapters. Book inserts cover special topics such a...
his publication follows the phenomenal success of not only the four editions of the Companion Guide to the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code published by ASME Press, but also two related updated volumes. Thus, this is the third book that is also a "standalone-publication," addressing Global Applications of the ASME B&PV Code. This book not only updates information of 16 chapters of the third volume of the third edition of the Companion Guide, but has additional 5 chapters selected for their unique features of ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes used internationally. This book has five parts addressing Global Applications of ASME B&PV Codes and Standards: Part 1: North America and Western ...
