Question: What is a good source of information for the design of pressure vessels?
Keywords: pressure,vessel,design,information,textbook,book
Answer: Pressure Vessel HandbookAuthor = Eugene F. MegyesyPublisher = Pressure Vessel Handbook Publ., Inc.P.O. Box 35365Tulsa, OK 74153Page 18 tells you how to calculate a pressue vessel's wall thickness; page 176 tells how to calculate an API Std. 650 Storage tank wall thickness. The rest of the book is a goldmine for young engineers - especially CHE's involved in vessel design. It also gives all the information you require for supports, nozzles, head design, piping, ladders, platforms, etc.
