The Fundamentals of Piping Designis an introduction to the design of piping systems, various processes and the layout of pipe work connecting the major items of equipment for the new hire, the engineering student and the veteran engineer needing a reference.
Peter Smith was formerly Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Cambridge. His books include Explaining Chaos (1998) and An Introduction to Formal Logic (2003) and he is also a former editor of the journal Analysis.
More than 350 illustrations and photographs provide examples and visual instructions. A unique feature is the systematic arrangement of drawings that begins with the layout of the structural foundations of a facility and continues through to the development of a 3-D model. Advanced chapters discuss the use of 3-D software tools from which elevation, section and isometric drawings, and bills of materials are extracted.Covers drafting and design of pipes from fundamentals to detailed advice on the development of piping drawings, using manual and CAD techniques3-D model images provide an uncommon opportunity to visualize an entire piping facilityEach chapter includes exercises and questions designed for review and practice
New to this edition:A large scale project that includes foundation location, equipment location, arrangement, and vendor drawingsUpdated discussion and use of modern CAD toolsAdditional exercises, drawings, and dimensioning charts to provide practice and assessmentNew set of Powerpoint images to help develop classroom lectures
Filled with examples drawn from years of design and field experience, this practical guide offers comprehensive information on piping installation, repair, and rehabilitation. All of the latest codes, standards, and specifications are included.
Piping Systems Manual is a hands-on design and engineering resource that explains the reasons behind the designs. You will get full coverage of materials, components, calculations, specifications, safety, and much more. Hundreds of detailed illustrations make it easy to understand the best practices presented in the book.
