This book titled Pressure Vessels: The ASME Code Simplified by Phillip Ellenberger is a hardcover book ( 0071436731 / 9780071436731). This book belongs to a series of books that are simplifing the International ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code as well as the ASME Piping Code. If you are thinking about using code books then I would suggest a editorialized condensed version. You cannot go wrong!
Pressure vessels are found everywhere -- from basement boilers to gasoline tankers -- and their usefulness is surpassed only by the hazardous consequences if they are not properly constructed and maintained. This essential reference guides mechanical engineers and technicians through the maze of the continually updated International Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes that govern safety, design, fabrication, and inspection.
* 30% new information including coverage of the recent ASME B31.3 code (This is Great!)

Get Up to Speed with the ASME Code
Revised and updated, this classic engineering tool simplifies the tasks of understanding and applying the complex ASME Code for fabricating, purchasing, testing, and inspecting pressure vessels.
Clearly explaining changes in B31.3, this Eighth Edition makes it easier to achieve Code compliance on any pressure-vessel-related project, to obtain ASME Code certification, and to meet performance goals in the most cost-effective way possible. Pressure Vessels explains the value of Code standards, shows you how the Code applies to each component, and clarifies requirements that may be confusing. This valuable text also features tables for calculating allowable internal pressures. You'll learn how to comply with ASME standards for:
- Safety procedures for design and maintenance
- Inspection and quality control
- Nondestructive testing
- Fabrication and installation
- Pressure vessels in nuclear power plants
Filled with helpful solutions to typical problems, the new edition of this handy working tool will give you the expertise you need to deal with all the changes in requirements for pressure vessels.
