Whether you are looking for Piping Design or Piping Stress Analysis, Little P.Eng. for engineers Training Blog covers everything through our inclusive articles.
Piping Fundamentals: dealing with commonly used terminology associated with piping units—U.S. Customary units and metric/SI units, piping components, materials, piping codes and standards, manufacturing of piping, fabrication and installation of piping, bolted joints, pre-stressed concrete piping, and grooved and Pressﬁt piping systems, Each chapter is a self-contained unit. The chapter numbers, ﬁgures and tables sequentially preceded.
Generic Design Considerations: Deal with generic design considerations, which may be applicable to any piping system irrespective of the ﬂuid or the mixture carried by the piping. The generic topics are design documents, design bases, piping layout, stress analysis, piping supports, heat tracing, thermal insulation, and ﬂow of ﬂuids. In addition, the lined piping systems: cement, rubber, epoxy and plastic lined piping systems are included to provide guidance when corrosion is a concern. Also, piping systems provides needed guidance to handle hazardous ﬂuids.
The last chapter in Part B deals with pressure testing of piping systems.
Piping Systems: dealing with a
speciﬁc type of piping system or systems involving application of speciﬁc considerations. The piping systems covered include water, ﬁre protection, steam, building services, oil, gas, chemical and reﬁnery (process piping), cryogenic, refrigeration,toxic and hazardous wastes, slurry and sludge, storm water and wastewater, plumbing, ash handling, compressed air and vacuum, fuel gas and laboratory piping systems.
Nonmetallic Piping: Addresses thermoplastics piping, Also, covers ﬁberglass piping systems.
