Pressure vessels are closed containers designed to hold gases or liquids at a pressure substantially different from the ambient
pressure. They have a variety of applications in industry, including in oil refineries, nuclear reactors, vehicle airbrake
reservoirs, and more. The pressure differential with such vessels is dangerous, and due to the risk of accident and fatality
around their use, the design, manufacture, operation and inspection of pressure vessels is regulated by engineering authorities
and guided by legal codes and standards. Pressure Vessel Design Manual is a solutions-focused guide to the many problems and
technical challenges involved in the design of pressure vessels to match stringent standards and codes. It brings together
otherwise scattered information and explanations into one easy-to-use resource to minimize research and take readers from
problem to solution in the most direct manner possible.
