Handbook of Mechanical In Service Inspection Book Review:

This comprehensive sister volume to Cliff Matthews’ highly successful Handbook of Mechanical Works Inspection gives a detailed coverage of pressure equipment and other mechanical plant such as cranes and rotating equipment. Key features: Accessible source of information Lavishly illustrated with numerous diagrams, photographs, and tables A wealth of valuable information Detailed, comprehensive coverage Written in easily accessible style A ‘must buy’ reference book The Handbook of Mechanical In-Service Inspection is a vital source of information for: plant owners and operators maintenance engineers inspection engineers from insurance companies and ‘competent bodies’ who perform in-service inspection health and safety operatives engineers operating pressure systems and mechanical plant all those concerned with the safe and efficient operation of machinery, plant, and pressure equipment. All engineering pressure systems and other types of mechanical equipment must be installed, operated, and maintained properly. It must be safe and comply with standards, regulations, and guidelines. In-service inspection is more formally controlled by statutory requirements than other types of inspection. The Handbook of Mechanical In-service Inspection puts a good deal of emphasis on the ‘compliance’ aspects and the ‘duty of care’ requirements placed on plant owners, operators, and inspectors. The book is suitable for those who operate pressure systems, lifting equipment, and similar mechanical plant are subject to rigorous inspection from external bodies as a matter of course. All operators have a duty to conduct in-service checks and internal inspection procedures to ensure the safe, reliable, and economic running of their equipment.

This edition covers a specific set of regulations or technical standards relating to pressure systems, lifting equipment, machinery, etc., picking out key technical points and explaining them in straightforward terms.The PSSRs: 2000 are legislation covering the 'in-service' use of pressure systems. They have the status of a statutory instrument and are therefore the law. Non-compliance is a criminal offence.Codes, standards, and regulations are complex documents that can be difficult to understand if you are not familiar with them or not using them on a day-to-day basis. Even with familiarity, there can still be difficulties with interpretations. This Quick Guide provides simple, clear, comprehensive essential information on complex pressure system regulations.The guide is: Accessible, well-structured information Easy to use Handy pocket-sized reference Direct and straightforward approach An indispensable user's guide Suitable for all from plant operators with limited knowledge of the regulations, to specialist readers who require more advanced implementation adviceAnyone, and any company, that uses, manufactures, buys or sells pressure equipment the compressed airline at the petrol station, hospitals, shopping centres, restaurants, manufacturing works, process plants, etc., - must comply with these regulations.

Mechanical Design of Machine Components Book Review:

Analyze and Solve Real-World Machine Design Problems Using SI Units Mechanical Design of Machine Components, Second Edition: SI Version strikes a balance between method and theory, and fills a void in the world of design. Relevant to mechanical and related engineering curricula, the book is useful in college classes, and also serves as a reference for practicing engineers. This book combines the needed engineering mechanics concepts, analysis of various machine elements, design procedures, and the application of numerical and computational tools. It demonstrates the means by which loads are resisted in mechanical components, solves all examples and problems within the book using SI units, and helps readers gain valuable insight into the mechanics and design methods of machine components. The author presents structured, worked examples and problem sets that showcase analysis and design techniques, includes case studies that present different aspects of the same design or analysis problem, and links together a variety of topics in successive chapters. SI units are used exclusively in examples and problems, while some selected tables also show U.S. customary (USCS) units. This book also presumes knowledge of the mechanics of materials and material properties. New in the Second Edition: Presents a study of two entire real-life machines Includes Finite Element Analysis coverage supported by examples and case studies Provides MATLAB solutions of many problem samples and case studies included on the book’s website Offers access to additional information on selected topics that includes website addresses and open-ended web-based problems Class-tested and divided into three sections, this comprehensive book first focuses on the fundamentals and covers the basics of loading, stress, strain, materials, deflection, stiffness, and stability. This includes basic concepts in design and analysis, as well as definitions related to properties of engineering materials. Also discussed are detailed equilibrium and energy methods of analysis for determining stresses and deformations in variously loaded members. The second section deals with fracture mechanics, failure criteria, fatigue phenomena, and surface damage of components. The final section is dedicated to machine component design, briefly covering entire machines. The fundamentals are applied to specific elements such as shafts, bearings, gears, belts, chains, clutches, brakes, and springs.

Pressure Vessels Book Review:

The choice of structural design and material is essential in preventing the external walls of a vessel from buckling under pressure. In this revised second edition of Pressure vessels, Carl Ross reviews the problem and uses both theoretical and practical examples to show how it can be solved for different structures. The second edition opens with an overview of the types of vessels under external pressure and materials used for construction. Axisymmetric deformation and different types of instability are discussed in the following chapters, with chapters 5 and 6 covering vibration of pressure vessel shells, both in water and out. Chapters 7 and 8 focus on novel pressure hulls, covering design, vibration and collapse, while chapters 9 and 10 concentrate on the design and non-linear analysis of submarine pressure hulls under external hydrostatic pressure. In chapter 11, the design, structure and materials of deep-diving underwater pressure vessels are discussed, focusing on their application in missile defence systems. Finally, chapter 12 analyses the vibration of a thin-walled shell under external water pressure, using ANSYS technology. Drawing on the author’s extensive experience in engineering and design both in an industrial and academic capacity, the second edition of Pressure vessels is an essential reference for stress analysts, designers, consultants and manufacturers of pressure vessels, as well as all those with an academic research interest in the area.
