Surface Production Operations: Facility Piping and Pipeline Systems, Volume III is a hands-on manual for applying mechanical and physical principles to all phases of facility piping and pipeline system design, construction, and operation. For over twenty years this now classic series has taken the guesswork out of the design, selection, specification, installation, operation, testing, and trouble-shooting of surface production equipment. The third volume presents readers with a "hands-on" manual for applying mechanical and physical principles to all phases of facility piping and pipeline system design, construction, and operation. Packed with charts, tables, and diagrams, this authoritative book provides practicing engineer and senior field personnel with a quick but rigorous exposition of piping and pipeline theory, fundamentals, and application. Included is expert advice for determining phase states and their impact on the operating conditions of facility piping and pipeline systems; determining pressure drop and wall thickness; and optimizing line size for gas, liquid, and two-phase lines. Also included are a guide to applying international design codes and standards, and guidance on how to select the appropriate ANSI/API pressure-temperature ratings for pipe flanges, valves, and fittings. Covers new and existing piping systems including concepts for expansion, supports, manifolds, pigging, and insulation requirements Presents design principles for a pipeline pigging system Teaches how to detect, monitor, and control pipeline corrosion Reviews onshore and offshore safety and environmental practices Discusses how to evaluate mechanical integrity

FOREWORD This second edition of HVAC Design Manual for Hospitals and Clinics adds updated information, provides in-depth design recommendations based on best practices, and presents proven, cost-effective, and reliable solutions that result in low maintenance cost and high reliability. Our intent is that this edition of the manual focuses specifically on heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system design for health care facilities, omitting general system descriptions that are readily available in other ASHRAE publications. Instead, our focus has been to present “what’s different” about health care HVAC. Although not a consensus document, this manual draws heavily on ANSI/ASHRAE/ASHE Standard 170-2008, Ventilation of Health Care Facilities, which is. Citations of the standard throughout this book should be understood to include its Addenda a to t and v. This edition is the result of a concerted effort by a fine group of volunteers whose job was made immensely easier by having the first edition to build upon. By intent, the authoring committee was composed primarily of consulting engineers with long experience in the design and construction of health care facilities. Jeff Hardin and John Kramer worked hard on both editions. Hospital engineers John Kramer, Heather Platt, and Ron Westbrook also wrote chapters and provided invaluable input to the entire book. Engineering editorial assistance was provided by John Murphy, and Walter Grondzik was technical editor. Kelly Short and Kelsey Grondzik assisted with tables and illustrations. The intended audience for this manual includes • consulting engineers; • experienced hospital designers who will use it as a reference; • mechanical engineers who wish to become familiar with health care design; • young engineers who seek a career specializing in health care HVAC design; • facility managers; • infection control personnel; • managers of planning and design; • maintenance staff; • contractors; • developers; and • code, accreditation, and licensure officials. Finally, I want to thank Layle Thomas for her fantastic organizational and editorial expertise, which was invaluable in coordinating the efforts of over 32 volunteers. It has been my honor to chair this committee. Dan Koenigshofer, PE, M Public Health, HFDP, SASHE Dewberry Engineers January 2013

Represents the State of the Art in Urban Lifeline Engineering Urban lifelines are buried or aboveground network systems used for water, sewerage, gas, power, and telecommunications. Dedicated to preserving the functions of lifeline systems against natural disasters, the Critical Urban Infrastructure Handbook is a vital compilation of urban utility management. This text utilizes the input of leading experts who have extensive experience with natural disasters, and provides a better understanding of the technical and legal framework of infrastructure construction and operation. Examine the Damage Data of Urban Lifelines Suffered by Seismic Disasters The book addresses water supply and sewerage, power, gas, telecommunications joint utility corridor lifeline facilities, and other critical civil infrastructure lifelines. It emphasizes the importance of the resilience of lifeline systems against natural disasters in protecting human lives and supporting survivors of disasters as well as in promptly recovering and reconstructing the affected areas. In addition, it also describes the structural damage of nodes and links, as well as the functional damage of the lifeline system from the viewpoint of disaster prevention and mitigation measures. This valuable work consists of 24 chapters in four sections covering: Design and construction of various lifeline facilities Maintenance Disaster management Environmental protection Disaster and emergency recovery measures Urban planning Life cycle costing GIS analysis of lifeline systems Computerized integrated management systems New materials and technologies The Critical Urban Infrastructure Handbook comprehensively describes common issues of lifeline systems, and provides practical information to engineers and industry professionals involved in the planning, construction, and maintenance of lifeline systems.

Author Joseph Dyro has been awarded the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) Clinical/Biomedical Engineering Achievement Award which recognizes individual excellence and achievement in the clinical engineering and biomedical engineering fields. He has also been awarded the American College of Clinical Engineering 2005 Tom O'Dea Advocacy Award. As the biomedical engineering field expands throughout the world, clinical engineers play an evermore important role as the translator between the worlds of the medical, engineering, and business professionals. They influence procedure and policy at research facilities, universities and private and government agencies including the Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization. Clinical Engineers were key players in calming the hysteria over electrical safety in the 1970's and Y2K at the turn of the century and continue to work for medical safety. This title brings together all the important aspects of Clinical Engineering. It provides the reader with prospects for the future of clinical engineering as well as guidelines and standards for best practice around the world. * Clinical Engineers are the safety and quality faciltators in all medical facilities.
