Mechanical engineering in simple terms deals with any equipment that moves; this is what makes it perhaps the most broad and diverse of engineering disciplines. The mechanical discipline essentially derives its breadth from the need to design and manufacture everything from small, even nano, individual devices, such as measuring instruments, to large systems such as machine tools and power plants. Easy installation and serviceability are critical to the success of a mechanical system as is operational and design flexibility.
This manual covers the practical aspects of pipeline design, integrity, maintenance and repair. Applicable codes and standards are examined, as will the issues of mechanical and hydraulic design and construction practices.
