Pipe Flow provides the information required to design and analyze the piping systems needed to support a broad range of industrial operations, distribution systems, and power plants. Throughout the book, the authors demonstrate how to accurately predict and manage pressure loss while working with a variety of piping systems and piping components. The book draws together and reviews the growing body of experimental and theoretical research, including important loss coefficient data for a wide selection of piping components. Experimental test data and published formulas are examined, integrated and organized into broadly applicable equations. The results are also presented in straightforward tables and diagrams. Sample problems and their solution are provided throughout the book, demonstrating how core concepts are applied in practice. In addition, references and further reading sections enable the readers to explore all the topics in greater depth. With its clear explanations, Pipe Flow is recommended as a textbook for engineering students and as a reference for professional engineers who need to design, operate, and troubleshoot piping systems. The book employs the English gravitational system as well as the International System (or SI).

The objective of this practical oil and gas piping handbook is to facilitate project management teams of oil and gas piping related construction projects to understand the key requirements of the discipline and to equip them with the necessary knowledge and protocol. It provides a comprehensive coverage on all the practical aspects of piping related material sourcing, fabrication essentials, welding related items, NDT activities, erection of pipes, pre-commissioning, commissioning, post-commissioning, project management and importance of ISO Management systems in oil and gas piping projects. This handbook assists contractors in ensuring the right understanding and application of protocols in the project. One of the key assets of this handbook is that the technical information and the format provided are practically from real time oil and gas piping projects; hence, the application of this information is expected to enhance the credibility of the contractors in the eyes of the clients and to some extent, simplify the existing operations. Another important highlight is that it holistically covers the stages from the raw material to project completion to handover and beyond. This will help the oil and gas piping contractors to train their project management staff to follow the best practices in the oil and gas industry. Furthermore, this piping handbook provides an important indication of the important project-related factors (hard factors) and organizational-related factors (soft factors) to achieve the desired project performance dimensions, such as timely completion, cost control, acceptable quality, safe execution and financial performance. Lastly, the role of ISO management systems, such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 in construction projects is widely known across the industry; however, oil and gas specific ISO quality management systems, such as ISO 29001, and project specific management systems, such as ISO 21500, are not widely known in the industry, which are explained in detail in this handbook for the benefit of the oil and gas construction organizations. Features: Covering the stages from the raw material to project completion, to handover and beyond Providing practical guidelines to oil and gas piping contractors for training purposes and best practices in the oil and gas industry Emphasizing project-related factors (hard factors) and organizational-related factors (soft factors) with a view to achieve the desired project performance Highlighting the roles of ISO management systems in oil and gas projects.

This book presents new methods of numerical modelling of tube heat exchangers, which can be used to perform design and operation calculations of exchangers characterized by a complex flow system. It also proposes new heat transfer correlations for laminar, transition and turbulent flows. A large part of the book is devoted to experimental testing of heat exchangers, and methods for assessing the indirect measurement uncertainty are presented. Further, it describes a new method for parallel determination of the Nusselt number correlations on both sides of the tube walls based on the nonlinear least squares method and presents the application of computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modeling to determine the air-side Nusselt number correlations. Lastly, it develops a control system based on the mathematical model of the car radiator and compares this with the digital proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller. The book is intended for students, academics and researchers, as well as for designers and manufacturers of heat exchangers.

Die Überarbeitung für die 10. deutschsprachige Auflage von Hermann Schlichtings Standardwerk wurde wiederum von Klaus Gersten geleitet, der schon die umfassende Neuformulierung der 9. Auflage vorgenommen hatte. Es wurden durchgängig Aktualisierungen vorgenommen, aber auch das Kapitel 15 von Herbert Oertel jr. neu bearbeitet. Das Buch gibt einen umfassenden Überblick über den Einsatz der Grenzschicht-Theorie in allen Bereichen der Strömungsmechanik. Dabei liegt der Schwerpunkt bei den Umströmungen von Körpern (z.B. Flugzeugaerodynamik). Das Buch wird wieder den Studenten der Strömungsmechanik wie auch Industrie-Ingenieuren ein unverzichtbarer Partner unerschöpflicher Informationen sein.

Dieses Lehr- und Handbuch behandelt sowohl die elementaren Konzepte als auch die fortgeschrittenen und zukunftsweisenden linearen und nichtlinearen FE-Methoden in Statik, Dynamik, Festkörper- und Fluidmechanik. Es wird sowohl der physikalische als auch der mathematische Hintergrund der Prozeduren ausführlich und verständlich beschrieben. Das Werk enthält eine Vielzahl von ausgearbeiteten Beispielen, Rechnerübungen und Programmlisten. Als Übersetzung eines erfolgreichen amerikanischen Lehrbuchs hat es sich in zwei Auflagen auch bei den deutschsprachigen Ingenieuren etabliert. Die umfangreichen Änderungen gegenüber der Vorauflage innerhalb aller Kapitel - vor allem aber der fortgeschrittenen - spiegeln die rasche Entwicklung innerhalb des letzten Jahrzehnts auf diesem Gebiet wieder.
