Materials Selection for Hydrocarbon and Chemical Plants

By Hansen Copyright 1996

    Describes the systematic procedure for using process and mechanical design information to select construction materials suitable for a range of chemical and hydrocarbon processing plants. The volume features tables for locating the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) product form specifications for construction materials that have code-allowable design stresses. It analyzes threshold values for degradation phenomena involving thermal damage.

    Materials selection template; materials; failure modes; corrosion testing; the process of materials selection; supplement - examples.
