This revised best-seller covers the latest ways to analyse different stresses, and create vessels that can survive fatigue, shock, high pressure, high temperature, irradiation, corrosion, and other hostile environments. It includes new chapters on autofrettage vessels, residual stress, and the influence of the Bauschinger effect, as adopted by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Other new areas include design of tube-sheets and tube seats, and use of post-weld heat treatment to effect residual stress in final rupture. Practical examples of combined creep and fatigue provide valuable on-the-job help. Extending the life of pressure vessels is also discussed, along with ways to cut costs without sacrificing quality. Updates respond to the increasing need for high strength, lightweight pressure vessels in the process, chemical, and petroleum industries, in addition to the growing demand for vessels resistant to external high pressures found in undersea exploration, offshore drilling, and mineral mining. This book should be of interest to mechanical, civil and chemical engineers involved in the design, construction and testing of pressure vessels at all companies engaged in vessel fabrication including petroleum, chemical and mining operations.
