This completely updated 12th edition of the Pressure Vessel Handbook by Eugene F. Megyesy reflects all the latest revisions, additions and deletions of the 2001 ASME Code, Section VIII Division 1, Section II Part D, and other relevant codes, standards and information. The purpose of this handbook is to make formulas, technical data, design data and construction methods readily available for all those dealing with pressure vessels. Practicing engineers often have difficulty finding the required data and solutions as they are scattered throughout the literature.
The author brings all the relevant information together in this one convenient, authoritative source. The handbook deals only with vessels constructed from ferrous materials by welding. Some of the rarely occurring loadings and special construction methods have also been excluded from the scope of the handbook. Contents: Design and construction of Pressure Vessels; Geometry and layout of pressure vessels; Measures and weights; Design of steel structures; Miscellaneous.
