Analysis of ASME Boiler, Pressure Vessel, and Nuclear Components in the Creep Range


This book is currently not in stock. You are pre-ordering this book.

Many structures in chemical plants, refineries, and power generation plants operate at elevated temperatures where creep and rupture are a design consideration. At such elevated temperatures, the material tends to undergo gradual strain with time, which could eventually lead to failure. Thus, the design of such components must take into consideration the creep and rupture of the material. Analysis of ASME Boiler, Pressure Vessel, And Nuclear Components in the Creep Range introduces the general principles of design at elevated temperatures with extensive references cited for further in-depth understanding of the subject. Each chapter has been updated and a new chapter covering on Creep Analysis – Remaining Life Method (discussing the requirements of ASME Code FFS-1) has also been included. Numerous examples are included to illustrate the practical application of the design and analysis methods presented. The design approaches illustrated in this book are based on the experience of the authors over the past 40 years, and the methodology shown in the book will help the engineer accomplish a safe and economical design for boiler and pressure vessel components operating at high temperatures where creep is a consideration.
