A highly practical troubleshooting tool for today's complex processing industry Evolving industrial technology-driven by the need to increase safety while reducing production losses-along with environmental factors and legal concerns has resulted in an increased emphasis on sound troubleshooting techniques and documentation. Analytical Troubleshooting of Process Machinery and Pressure Vessels provides both students and engineering professionals with the tools necessary for understanding and solving equipment problems in today's complex processing environment. Drawing on forty years of industrial experience in the petrochemical, transportation, and component manufacturing industries, the author introduces analytical models that utilize simple mathematics to provide engineers with the information needed to understand equipment operation and failure modes. This will allow engineering professionals to talk intelligibly with manufacturers, implement modifications required for continued operation, and ultimately help them save millions of dollars in lost production or warranty claims. Readers will find in-depth coverage of factors that can cause equipment failure, including: * Component wear and fretting * Vibration of machines and piping * Instabilities and sizing of pumps and compressors * Thermal loads and stresses * Gear, bearing, shafting, and coupling loading * Corrosion and materials of construction By striking a balance between analytical and practical considerations, each potential problem area is illustrated with case studies taken from the author's own extensive experience and accompanied by methods that can be used to address a variety of related challenges.

This Second Edition of the go-to reference combines the classical analysis and modern applications of applied mathematics for chemical engineers. The book introduces traditional techniques for solving ordinary differential equations (ODEs), adding new material on approximate solution methods such as perturbation techniques and elementary numerical solutions. It also includes analytical methods to deal with important classes of finite-difference equations. The last half discusses numerical solution techniques and partial differential equations (PDEs). The reader will then be equipped to apply mathematics in the formulation of problems in chemical engineering. Like the first edition, there are many examples provided as homework and worked examples.

Rules of Thumb for Mechanical Engineers assembles hundreds of shortcuts, calculations, practical "how-to" methods, and concise background reviews into one convenient volume. Whether you're concerned with design, selection, or performance of equipment, you'll find fast, accurate answers here. Sixteen chapters are packed with design criteria and practical tips contributed by experts in their respective fields, all without pages of theory. This easy-to-read book presents valuable information on fluids, heat transfer, thermodynamics, seals, pumps and compressors, drivers, gears, bearings, and piping and pressure vessels. Additional coverage is given to tribology, vibrations, materials, stress and fatigue, instrumentation, and engineering economics. Mechanical engineers, maintenance engineers and personnel, and anyone involved in the operation of facilities and equipment will have this volume on his or her desktop more often than on the bookshelf.

Properties, Specifications and Applications: Covering the subject of steel metallurgy from its applications point of view, this book discusses the applied metallurgical knowledge required for easy-learning about steels, their properties, specifications, heat treatment and applications. : The book is conceptually divided into four parts: ÿThe first part introduces the basic metallurgical facts about steel and its characteristics, covers the most important aspects of steel metallurgy, its applications, and fundamental features of steelmaking and rolling processes, and highlights the different types of properties of steel and the need for testing and evaluation: ÿDiscussing the classifications, specifications and properties of steels in a more quantitative manner (based on popular standards and standard-based data), the second part focuses on different steel grades and their merits and properties for selection and applications ÿThe third part focuses on heat treatment and welding of steels, various heat treatment methods and their purposes, and basic aspects of welding and welding precautions in steels ÿDwelling on the application of steels, the fourth part discusses the totality of steel applications from the point of view of reliability and component integrity, the importance of cost and quality optimization in applications, and the criticality of design and manufacturing quality for prevention of failures Steel Metallurgy has been designed to provide all necessary information and practice-based knowledge about steel characteristics, steel properties, steel grades, and steel applications for selecting, processing and using steels with right understanding and for the right purposes.ÿ Highlights of the book: ÿProvides deep theoretical and practice-based knowledge about steels, their properties, specifications, heat treatment and applications ÿIncludes large number of examples, illustrations and case studies ÿIncludes elaborate Index of contents for cross-referencing, a Bibliography for further reading and reference, and Glossary of Important Metallurgical Terms ÿSimplified and highly illustrated narration ideal for metallurgical students, metallurgists and non-metallurgical engineers The book is intended for both students and practitioners. The book will help students of metallurgy and other engineering disciplines to understand the applied and functional-basics of steels relating to their properties, specifications and applications. Engineers and technical personnel in industries dealing with steel processing and its uses will benefit from the hard look the book takes for the precise selection of steel for the right purposes by providing workable knowledge on steel metallurgy and steel specifications. ÿ
