Written by one of the most well-respected teams of scientists in the area of pipelines, this revolutionary approach offers the engineer working in the energy industry the theory, analysis, and practical applications for applying new materials and modeling to the design and effective use of flexible pipes.
Recent changes in the codes for building pipelines has led to a boom in the production of new materials that can be used in flexible pipes.
With the use of polymers, steel, and other new materials and variations on existing materials, the construction and, therefore, the installation and operation of flexible pipes is changing and being improved upon all over the world.
The authors of this work have written numerous books and papers on these subjects and are some of the most influential authors on flexible pipes in the world, contributing much of the literature on this subject to the industry.
This new volume is a presentation of some of the most cutting-edge technological advances in technical publishing. This is the most comprehensive and in-depth book on this subject, covering not just the various materials and their aspects that make them different, but every process that goes into their installation, operation, and design.
The thirty-six chapters, divided up into four different parts, have had not just the authors of this text but literally dozens of other engineers who are some of the world's leading scientists in this area contribute to the work.
This is the future of pipelines, and it is an important breakthrough.
A must-have for the veteran engineer and student alike, this volume is an important new advancement in the energy industry, a strong link in the chain of the world's energy production. Flexible Pipes: * Introduces a new approach to the design, construction, and installation of flexible pipes * Presents both the theory and practical applications of flexible pipes with a view toward its use in pipelines and other industrial settings * Describes the new materials being used in flexible pipes and goes through them, considering their construction, chemical composition, strengths, and weaknesses in various industrial contexts * Introduces engineering students to a profound theory for stronger and more efficient designs in pipelines and provides the veteran engineer a valuable references
