  • Description
  • Contents

This book provides inspectors and engineers with an approach to predictive control of corrosion in chemical processing industries. This approach is based on ranking the risk of possible losses of capital equipment due to corrosion. The maintenance, inspection and operations activities can then be organized to keep their focus on those pieces of equipment that are considered to be at highest risk of corrosion failure. Assigning such a hierarchy to the equipment, based on this Asset-Loss-Risk concept, allows maintenance and inspection costs to be reduced and overall plant profitability to be increased.

Fracture mechanics is discussed at great length in terms of cost benefit and methodology covering specific applications such as cast irons, cast and wrought steels, pressure vessels, pressure tubes, stress maps, and failure assessment diagrams.
