The Pressure Vessel Handbook is a reference book that is prepared for the purpose of making formulas, technical data, design, and construction methods readily available for the designer, detailer, layout-person and others dealing with pressure vessels. Individuals in this industry often have difficulty finding the required data and solutions, these being scattered throughout extensive literature or advanced studies. The authors aim was to bring together all of the above material under one cover and present it in a convenient form.

The book contains 460 illustrations, 95 tables, and 30 charts.

Editorial Reviews

Review

Contains practically everything required for the design and construction of pressure vessels. As such, this handbook becomes a convenient, extremely pertinent reference tool. --Joseph T. Buckmaster, P.E. OXY

Design engineers should find it invaluable for quick reference for most of their pressure vessel problems. --National Safety Council

Provides the formulae, technical data, design, and construction methods needed by the designer, layout person and other dealing with pressure vessels. In the past, practicing engineers often had difficulty finding the required data, codes, and solutions that were scattered throughout extensive literature. The author has brought together all of the above material under one cover, in a convenient form. --The Oil & Gas Journal
