    schema:reviewBody ""The most widely used book of its kind, Pressure Vessels: The ASME Code Simplified has now been revised and updated to provide comprehensive information on how to fabricate, purchase, test, and inspect pressure vessels that meet ASME Code specifications." "Now designers, engineers, estimators, inspectors, and users of pressure vessels can turn to the new edition of this expert guide for a complete understanding of all Code requirements, including recent Code changes and 1991 federal regulations from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for cargo tanks." "The Seventh Edition fully discusses the origins, development, and jurisdiction of the ASME Code, and provides Canadian pressure vessel requirements as well. The book also clearly explains how to meet performance goals and current Code requirements in the most cost-effective manner possible." "This invaluable sourcebook illustrates how the ASME Code applies to each vessel component, and includes tables for calculating allowable internal pressures. Included are detailed procedures for complying with ASME standards for safety procedures for design and maintenance; inspection and quality control; welding, welding procedure, and operator qualifications; nondestructive testing; fabrication and installation; and pressure vessels used in nuclear power plants." "Of special importance in the Seventh Edition is the new chapter entirely devoted to the 1991 DOT standards for cargo tanks. These tanks must now be built by manufacturers holding an ASME Certificate of Authorization. In addition, repairs and alterations must be made in shops holding the ASME Code certification or the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors "R" certification. The Seventh Edition clarifies these new standards, and explains how to obtain the required certifications."" ;
