9780071453998: Fitness-for-Service Evaluations for Piping and Pressure Vessels: ASME Code Simplified (Mechanical Engineering Series)

Based on some of his students most frequently asked questions, Antaki emphasizes the practical applications of this ASME recommended practice. With this book readers will understand and apply API 579 in their daily work. The material is based on the author’s course and presented in clear concise manor. The book demonstrates how the disciplines of stress analysis, materials engineering, and nondestructive inspection interact and apply to fitness-for-service assessment. These assessment methods apply to pressure vessels, piping, and tanks that are in service. This makes it the perfect companion book for Ellenberger’s, Pressure Vessels: ASME Code Simplified as well as Ellenberger’s Piping Systems and Pipeline: ASME B31 Code Simplified.

  • ASME and API rules for structural integrity of equipment and pipelines

A Complete Guide to ASME Recommended Practices for Assessing, Monitoring, and Maintaining Pressure Vessels and Piping

Fitness-for-Service and Integrity of Piping Vessels and Tanks provides instruction on the latest ASME recommended practices for inspecting, evaluating, and monitoring pressure vessels and Piping.

This handy volume annotates and explains ASME code and API inspection and fitness-for-service practices. Presented in a clear, precise manner, this comprehensive guide meticulously explains how stress analysis, materials, engineering, and nondestructive inspection affect fitness-for-service.

The tools needed to . . .

  • Inspect and categorize damage, degradation, and corrosion mechanisms
  • Evaluate wall thinning, pitting, cracking, fatigue, mechanical damage, high-temperature corrosion, and creep
  • Develop and implement programs for corrective and predictive maintenance of tanks, vessels, piping, and pipelines
  • Select the right repair technique and avoid pitfalls in repair welding and joining

What Causes Failures * Material Defects; Design Errors * Construction Flaws * Corrosion and Damage Mechanisms * Failures In-Service * Inspection Techniques; Maintenance and Risk-Based Inspection Strategies * Failure Margins and Prevention * Margins to Failure * Run-or-Repair Decisions * Repair Techniques
