This comprehensive sister volume to Cliff Matthews’ highly successful Handbook of Mechanical Works Inspection gives a detailed coverage of pressure equipment and other mechanical plant such as cranes and rotating equipment. Key features: Accessible source of information Lavishly illustrated with numerous diagrams, photographs, and tables A wealth of valuable information Detailed, comprehensive coverage Written in easily accessible style A ‘must buy’ reference book The Handbook of Mechanical In-Service Inspection is a vital source of information for: plant owners and operators maintenance engineers inspection engineers from insurance companies and ‘competent bodies’ who perform in-service inspection health and safety operatives engineers operating pressure systems and mechanical plant all those concerned with the safe and efficient operation of machinery, plant, and pressure equipment. All engineering pressure systems and other types of mechanical equipment must be installed, operated, and maintained properly. It must be safe and comply with standards, regulations, and guidelines. In-service inspection is more formally controlled by statutory requirements than other types of inspection. The Handbook of Mechanical In-service Inspection puts a good deal of emphasis on the ‘compliance’ aspects and the ‘duty of care’ requirements placed on plant owners, operators, and inspectors. The book is suitable for those who operate pressure systems, lifting equipment, and similar mechanical plant are subject to rigorous inspection from external bodies as a matter of course. All operators have a duty to conduct in-service checks and internal inspection procedures to ensure the safe, reliable, and economic running of their equipment.

The need for a comprehensive book on probabilistic structural mechanics that brings together the many analytical and computational methods developed over the years and their applications in a wide spectrum of industries-from residential buildings to nuclear power plants, from bridges to pressure vessels, from steel structures to ceramic structures-became evident from the many discussions the editor had with practising engineers, researchers and professors. Because no single individual has the expertise to write a book with such a di.verse scope, a group of 39 authors from universities, research laboratories, and industries from six countries in three continents was invited to write 30 chapters covering the various aspects of probabilistic structural mechanics. The editor and the authors believe that this handbook will serve as a reference text to practicing engineers, teachers, students and researchers. It may also be used as a textbook for graduate-level courses in probabilistic structural mechanics. The editor wishes to thank the chapter authors for their contributions. This handbook would not have been a reality without their collaboration.

Corn: Chemistry and Technology, Third Edition, provides a broad perspective on corn from expert agronomists, food scientists and geneticists. This encyclopedic storehouse of comprehensive information on all aspects of the world’s largest crop (in metric tons) includes extensive coverage of recent development in genetic modification for the generation of new hybrids and genotypes. New chapters highlight the importance of corn as a raw material for the production of fuel bioethanol and the emerging topic of phytochemicals or nutraceutical compounds associated to different types of corns and their effect on human health, especially in the prevention of chronic diseases and cancer. Written by international experts on corn, and edited by a highly respected academics, this new edition will remain the industry standard on the topic. Presents new chapters that deal with specialty corns, the production of first generation bioethanol, and the important relationship of corn phytochemicals or nutraceuticals with human health Provides contributions from a new editor and a number of new contributors who bring a fresh take on this highly successful volume Includes vastly increased content relating to recent developments in genetic modification for the generation of new hybrids and genotypes Contains encyclopedic coverage of grain chemistry and nutritional quality of this extensively farmed product Covers the production and handling of corn, with both food and non-food applications
