Within the boiler, piping and pressure vessel industry, pressure relief devices are considered one of the most important safety components. These Devices are literally the last line of defense against catastrophic failure or even lose of life. Written in plain language, this fifth book in the ASME Simplified series addresses the various codes and recommended standards of practice for the maintenance and continued operations of pressure relief valves as specified by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the American Petroleum Institute. Covered in this book are: preventive maintenance procedures, methods for evaluation of mechanical components and accepted methods for cleaning, adjusting and lubricating various components to assure continued operation and speed performance as well as procedures for recording and evaluating these items.

Based on some of his students most frequently asked questions, Antaki emphasizes the practical applications of this ASME recommended practice. With this book readers will understand and apply API 579 in their daily work. The material is based on the author’s course and presented in clear concise manor. The book demonstrates how the disciplines of stress analysis, materials engineering, and nondestructive inspection interact and apply to fitness-for-service assessment. These assessment methods apply to pressure vessels, piping, and tanks that are in service. This makes it the perfect companion book for Ellenberger’s, Pressure Vessels: ASME Code Simplified as well as Ellenberger’s Piping Systems and Pipeline: ASME B31 Code Simplified.

Concern for the environment has become one of the big issues in modern society, and one of the chief concerns is the environmental impact of modern industrial production. A particularly sensitive issue is the possibility of accidents in industries where there may be severe consequences for people, property and the environment. At one time the nuclear industry was seen as the most likely to be the cause of significant environmental damage, but after the occurrence of several major accidents such as Seveso, Flixborough and Bhopal, that concern extends to much of the chemicals industry. Pressure from society, reflected by strong legislation, coupled with a greater understanding of the impact that chemical processing operations can have, has led to the adoption of higher profile safety and environmental management programs within the chemical industry. Under these programmes existing and new processes are rigorously examined to determine the possible causes and consequences of failure, and the results used to improve the process to make failure less likely. Any process audit, aimed at improving safety or lessening the environmental impact, cannot be carried out using intuition or experience alone, so the discipline of risk analysis has grown as a collection of tools and methods which can be utilized to give a quantitative assessment of the risks involved in operating any given process. In this new book the authors present risk analysis and reduction in a clear and unified way, emphasizing the various different methods which can be used together in a global approach to risk analysis in the chemical process industries. Originally conceived as a text book for graduate level courses in chemical engineering, the clear presentation and thorough coverage will ensure that anyone involved in risk assessment, environmental impact assessment or safety planning will find this book an invaluable source of reference.

Der Verfasser der "High-Speed Internal-Combustion Engine" ist durch seine Arbeiten auf dem Gebiet der schnellaufenden Verbren nungskraftmaschine weit über die Grenzen seines Landes hinaus be kannt geworden, gilt doch Sir HARRY RICARDO heute in der inter nationalen Fachwelt als eine der ersten Autoritäten auf diesem Son dergebiet. Seine Arbeiten reichen bis in die Zeit vor dem ersten Welt krieg zurück, als er in einer eigenen kleinen Werkstatt an einem selbst gebauten Motor die Vorgänge im Brennraum zu studieren begann, behindert durch die Unvollkommenheit der Versuchseinrichtungen und durch den Mangel am Wichtigsten, was zu solchen Versuchen gehört, am Geld. Aber er ließ sich nicht entmutigen und hatte das Glück, frühzeitig die finanzielle Hilfe weitsichtiger Förderer seiner Arbeiten zu finden, von denen er den Namen des Sir ROBERT WALEY COHEN von der Asiatic Petroleum Co. und die SHELL-Gruppe erwähnt, die es ihm in großzügiger Weise ermöglichteu, jenes Laboratorium in Shoreham-on-Sea. einzurichten, das noch heute unter seiner Leitung steht. Das hier investierte Kapital hat reiche Zinsen getragen, nicht nur für die englische Motoren-Industrie, sondern auch für die aller anderen Länder, soweit sie Verbrennungskraftmaschinen bauen, denn RICARDOS großes Verdienst ist, daß er in zahlreichen Veröffentlichun gen die Fachwelt an den Ergebnissen seiner Forschungen hat teil nehmen lassen. RWARDOS Buch, von dem heute die vierte Auflage vorliegt, erschien erstmalig im Jahre 1923 und wurde damals sogleich ins Deutsche übersetzt.

Praktiker benötigen Hilfsmittel und Methoden, welche ihnen helfen, ein tieferes Verständnis bzgl. der Bedürfnisse und Anforderungen der Nachfrager zu erlangen. Matzler und Hinterhuber schlagen das Kano-Modell der Kundenzufriedenheit vor. Die Kano-Methode ermöglicht es, Kundenanforderungen zu strukturieren und ihren Einfluss auf die Zufriedenheit als erfolgsbestimmende Größe zu ermitteln. Durch die Klassifizierung der Kundenanforderungen in Basis-, Leistungs- und Begeisterungsanforderungen erhält der Praktiker ein Hilfsmittel zur Priorisierung und Behandlung von Trade-offs in der Produktentwicklung, zur Entwicklung maßgeschneiderter Leistungspakete für bestimmte Problemlösungen und Anhaltspunkte für Differenzierungsmöglichkeiten gegenüber dem Wettbewerb. Die in dieser Studie untersuchten Produkte zeichnen sich durch eine große Komplexität hinsichtlich der Anforderungen aus und sind somit sehr geeignet für die Anwendung des Kano-Modells. Neben der theoretischen Erläuterung des Kano-Modells wird anschaulich und kritisch die Durchführung einer Untersuchung von der Fragebogenerstellung bis hin zur Interpretation der Auswertung der Ergebnisse dargestellt.
